Free Talk/Reading - Why Poetry Matters
Poetry has nearly disappeared from high school English curriculums, narrowing the potential for interest in the art and deepening its reputation as obtuse and unnecessary. And yet, there are always students compelled to write verse on their own, to take creative writing classes if offered, work on school literary magazines, and to participate in programs such as Poetry Out Loud.
Maureen Morehead will discuss why poetry matters in today's world, not only for K-12 but for all members of society. She will read from her recent books The Melancholy Teacher, Late August Blues: The Daylily Poems, and The Red Gate, all from Larkspur Press, Monterey, KY.
