Join us for a poetry circle: Selections from Mary Oliver, Wendell Berry et al.

Join us Thursday September 27th at 7p for reading and discussing poetry from the heart. [This is a make-up meeting after the August 30th meetup was cancelled due to Hurricane Isaac.] We meet outside on the patio at the new Fresh Market. We might be on the St Charles side or the Louisiana side of the patio. [You might want to arrive early if you need a drink or food from inside. Be mindful that our meetup time is 7p. FYI, the store will close at 9.]

 

The selection for the September 27 meetup is 27 short pieces by 4 poets: Mary Oliver, Sharon Olds, John O'Donohue and Wendell Berry. Please read them -- hopefully more than once -- in advance. For the purpose of our meeting, we'll focus on a few favorite ones.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please come with a hard copy or with the poems ALREADY downloaded to your preferred device -- ipad, laptop, smartphone. The Fresh market is probably not wireless and we don't plan on spending our poetry time on getting you ready. However, know that I'll be there 30 minutes early if you need tech support.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
