Anne Klaeysen, Leader of the New York Society for Ethical Culture, will speak about poetry. As Anne says, poetry has the power to inspire us and elicit empathy for others. It can turn us inward to reflect upon the meaning of our lives, as well as open us up to people and places around the world. For some women, writing and reciting poetry are acts that put their lives at risk. Still, they do it to survive the harsh conditions under which they live and love. Join Anne to learn more about the power of poetry.
