Sign up today for: Finding Pleasure in Poetry with Kathleen Stevens

Some people really like reading poetry.  Others, not so much.  When was the last time you read a poem?  In your mind, what makes a good poem?

Kathleen Stevens, a retired writing teacher from Rowan University, believes that outside of literature classes, the test of a poem's merit is whether it appeals to the person reading it.  Join her Tuesday afternoons in June to consider poems from a range of poets.  Discussion will include reflections on the craft of poetry - the way poets shape lines, employ sound and rhythm, and intensify meaning through word choice and imagery.  We think you'll find poems that appeal to you.

When:  Tuesdays at 2 PM:  June 6, 13, 20 and 27

Where:  Moorestown Library, Meeting Room A
