Just confirmed with Friends of the St. Paul Public Library that we’ll be doing some more Known by Heart programming, exploring poetry and memory. After the May event, people told us they enjoyed hearing poetry presented from memory. The intersection of words and memory is a topic that resonates with people.
Known by Heart will continue as a series of four events in Fall 2013. Expect some new poets presenting work from memory, workshops on presenting work from memory, and a memorized poetry slam. I’m thrilled to be working again with the Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library, as well as Zaraawar Mistry, Dreamland Arts, who’s agreed to co-present one of the workshops with me.
I’ll keep you posted as we finalize details.
