Our poetry book club meets the first Wednesday of each month from 5:30 to 7:00. Beginning with the first January meeting, they will be discussing poems from Crave Radiance by Elizabeth Alexander and will continue with it through March.
Feel free to join the group even if you haven't read the poems before the meeting.
Over twenty years, Elizabeth Alexander has become one of America's most exciting and important poets, and her selection as the inaugural poet by President Barack Obama confirmed her place as one of the indispensable voices of our time. Crave Radiance: New and Selected Poems 1990 2010 gathers twenty pages of new poetry, along with generous selections from her previous work. The result is the definitive volume to date by this American master.
