Stubborn Praise with guest Naomi Shihab Nye

February 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm MST

Free

Stubborn Praise: An evening celebrating here and now through poetry

with hosts Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer and James Crews

and special guest Naomi Shihab Nye

free

REGISTRATION REQUIRED: Here

 

Every (other) second Monday of the month, invite yourself to an evening of poetry that wholly meets the moment, its losses and fears, and helps us also to see small kindnesses, stubborn blessings, and renegade beauty. After the readings will be conversation harvested from questions and comments in Zoom chat. Though unlimited people may register, space is limited to 100, so be sure to show up on time!

February’s guest, Naomi Shihab Nye, has written or edited more than thirty books, including nine anthologies of poems, and has been poetry editor for the Texas Observer and the New York Times Magazine. She is on faculty at Texas State University and has been a visiting writer all over the world, all her adult life. She is the author most recently of Everything Comes Next: Collected and New Poems.

 

The evening will begin with a few poems by each of the hosts, then a reading by Nye, and then a conversation between the three about poetry and how it is helping us meet this moment.

 

Our guest for March 2021 (special edition!) will be Ellen Bass.
