160 Memorial Drive
Over four weeks of the new year, a group will gather daily to read and discuss memorable poems. This is the Pleasures of Poetry series, sponsored by MIT's Literature Section. These seminar-style meetings take place 1-2 PM in Room 14E-304 (directions, http://web.mit.edu/sca/Directions/Public/14E-304.dir.txt). The poems are available ahead of time, via http://lit.mit.edu or as hard-copy packets to be picked up from the Literature HQ office. Each session is facilitated by a different moderator.
Persons from outside the MIT community are welcome to attend, one session or as many of them as they like. Though, it is advisable to let Lit staff member Chloe Jones know you plan to be there -- she can be reached at cjjones at mit dot edu.
