WXW Poets Creating Conversation: Education In America, February 26, 7P at the Berkshire Museum

Poets Creating Conversation

Education in America

February 26, 7P
Berkshire Museum, 39 South Street, Pittsfield
[Free]

Everybody's got something to say. Public education, home school, k-12, college, or the lessons that life has dropped on us. In this fast paced program, poets are challenged to apply their creative energy to slicing and dicing education in America. From inside the halls and walls of our institutions to the “real” world, cautionary tales and inspirational stories, told as only a poet can.

Poets Creating Conversation is a three-part series that asks poets to help us unpack and navigate through issues that we are all inexorably wrapped in. Expect hard truths and humor; cautionary tales and inspirational stories all rolled into a fast paced program.
