Event description

Description

Women Writing for (a) Change is pleased to announce
a free talk/reading with Maureen Morehead
(Kentucky Poet Laureate 2011-2012)!

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.

With gratitude and appreciation to the anonymous donor who made this event possible.
