A Life in Retrospect: History Comes Calling

While we write , history is moving on with or without us. We will read poems that respond to what is happening in the world around us. To weave the personal with the political- but not to be polemic-- that is the work of poets everywhere. Three poets who write out of their times as well as their hearts will present.
