Oro Valley Poetry Circle: 3 Indigenous Poets

Thursday, September 21, 2023 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

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.

Indigenous poets are providing a rich and vibrant body of work which examines the connection and intersection of our human condition with the environment; especially that of our beautiful desert southwest.  We will share the poetry and consider the art of Manny Loley, Ofelia Zepeda and Joy Harjo.
