WordXWord: Poets Creating Conversation | Home in America
Jan 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
WordXWord: Poets Creating Conversation | Home in America

By sharing personal stories, observations, moments of inspiration, and hope, we look to create a broad poetic tapestry with a goal that the resulting “conversation” between creative voices will make us stronger and help us find a way forward.

Home in America: For better or worse, there is no place like home (unless you don’t have one). Poets help put a roof on it.

Free and open to the community.
