Book Club: May 12th
Book Club to discuss the rich traditon of American Peoples' Poetry
The May book club meeting will be devoted to its annual celebration of poetry. Inspired by Amanda Gorman's democratizing inauguration poem addressed to the American people and deftly incorporating elements from popular culture, this meeting will be dedicated to our rich tradition of "people's poetry" intended for the expression, enjoyment and edification of common people. This is the place to bring in your favorite sing-song childhood ditties, wicked limericks, wrenching hip-hop, cowboy and back woods verse tales, and other beloved versifying intended more for low-brow home and pub than high-brow Harvard and Cambridge. Some cross-over (e.g. Walt Whitman and Gorman?) accepted with properly low-brow justification. This one is for fun.
The Zoom meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 12th, at 4:30 pm, and participants are welcome to enjoy a beverage, alcoholic or not, during the meeting! Bill Meyers will be hosting the meeting. The meeting login details will be sent a day before the event. Please RSVP to Sadia Niazi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
