Poets have long been tasked with writing the times as they are and all that wades below the surface. From sexual harassment and misogyny in the #metoo movement, to race and the social & political impact of government, poetry has allowed readers to consider the resulting personal wounds and community outrage. Panelists will discuss poetry that compels us to look at our chaotic present and uncertain future.
