In recognition of National Poetry Month, we are asking folks to bring poems about favorite (exotic) places and visits they may have made, in real life or in their imagination. For example, Coleridge’s “Kubla Khan”, is one of the most famous poems about exotic places. There will be an opportunity to share these poems through recitation and discussion. Our facilitator Ed Block will also have poems to share and discuss. Refreshments will be served. Please call 414-220-3217 to register.
