Reading on a winter's bench

There’s not a lot that rhymes with pandemic. 

This hour, Margaret Gibson, Connecticut’s poet laureate joins us for a conversation on poetry writing during the coronavirus. It’s our Pandemic Book Club - poetry hour! 

Coming up, we talk about how she’s responding to the grief this pandemic has created. There are many poems on the natural beauty of the state, but very little about protecting our environment. Margaret is encouraging town poet laureates across the state to address global climate change through poetry. 

We want to hear from you. Share a poem with us. Are you reading more poetry? Are you doing more creative writing while we are stuck at home?

GUESTS:

  • Margaret Gibson - Connecticut Poet Laureate
  • JC Wayne - founder of The Poartry Project
