Description

Speaker Gigi Bradford, teacher & author

Do you struggle finding meaning in poetry? Is it too artsy for you? Contemporary poetry has shucked off obligatory rhymes and obscurity. Poetry is more topical, urgent, and accessible than ever, and more people find it speaks to our present cultural condition. Come find out what the increased interest is about, and leave convinced that some poems are for you and that it’s okay not to enjoy others.

Gigi Bradford is the inaugural recipient of the Poets House Elizabeth Kray Award for Service to Literature. She has directed The Academy of American Poets, The Folger Shakespeare Library Poetry Program, the National Endowment for the Arts Literature Program, and the Center for Arts and Culture, the first think tank for the arts.

Read more about Bradford here. This event is part of Tuesday Talks, a monthly speaker series featuring some of Cleveland and Woodley Park's most fascinating residents. Brought to you by the Cleveland Park Business Association, the Cleveland and Woodley Park Village, and the DC Public Library.
