Earning Our Daily Bread: Poets & Their Day Jobs

Hand writing.jpgJoin MPL's Poet Laureate Brenda Cardenas for an afternoon discussion of poetry and poets on Saturday, Dec. 11 at 2:00 p.m. in the Krug Rare Books Room of Central Library.

The program will feature a panel discussion with Frank Lima (New York poet & master chef), Nina Corwin (poet & psychotherapist), William Fuller (poet & trust officer), Sue Blaustein (poet & food safety inspector & union officer), and moderator Karl Gartung (poet & truck driver & Woodland Pattern co-founder).

These poets will discuss the relationship between a poet's day job and his/her poetry, writing career, and writing process. How might these elements affect one another? How might these poets' work lives enrich their poetry or detract from their inspiration?

This event is linked to a poetry reading by Frank Lima at Woodland Pattern Book Center, 720 E. Locust St., on Dec. 10 at 7:00 p.m.
