Aging and the Arts Poetry Circle: Timothy Donnelly

Saturday, September 23, 2023 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

This conversation will take place in the Dorothy Rubel Room at the University of Arizona Poetry Center or in favorable weather conditions in the immediately adjacent breezeway. 

Join us for monthly poetry discussions, led by docents from the UA Poetry Center. The event is free, and no preparation or knowledge of poetry is necessary to participate.  A reading packet will be shared.  For anyone who enjoys poetry or learning more about poets in a conversational setting, this informal gathering includes many opportunities to contribute to the conversation and ask questions. It is also a great way to meet people in the community who have similar interests. The discussion will feature the work of Timothy Donnelly, who reads at the Poetry Center on October 19th at 7pm.
