Join 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?
