Poetry Café attendees will have the opportunity to do close readings of poems, as well as discuss and enjoy their sound and sense with others. This season’s poems will center on the experiences of refugees and migrants.

Poetry Café attendees are guided in close readings of poems, and discussing their sound and sense with others. For our January gathering, we’ll consider the poems in Javier Zamora’s recent Publication “Unaccompanied.” The poet chronicles his own unaccompanied migration from El Salvador to the U.S. at the age of nine. In reading Zamora’s work, we may recall our own stories, or those of our forebears; we’ll see how contemporary poetry addresses matters ripped from the headlines.

Copies of “Unaccompanied” are available in the discussion group section. Handouts of selected poems available at info desk.
