Poetry & Wine (grown ups): Read the poems. Come and discuss. We are a very non-pretentious group of poetry enthusiasts who gather once each month. This is an open group. There is no need to sign-up ahead of time. Just read the selection and show up. Bring a bottle of wine (or bourbon or whatever), or a dessert of some sort to share if you wish. Folks read their favorite poems and we have truly interesting and wonderful discussions. Send a note to Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information or to get on the email list!
We’re meeting next on Wednesday, July 21st, at 7 pm. Again, we'll congregate on the Square, weather permitting.
We’ll be discussing The Blizzard Voices by Ted Kooser, a former United States Poet Laurate. Little Shop has this book on the shelves.
This book is a collection of poems recording the devastation unleashed on the Great Plains by the blizzard of January 12, 1888. The Blizzard Voices is based on the actual reminiscences of the survivors as recorded in documents from the time and written reminiscences from years later.
