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.

At this meeting, we’ll look at poems that touch on immigration, as curated by The Poetry Foundation website. Included will be poems by Adam Zagajewski, Emma Lazurus, Maria Melendez Kelson and Li-Young Lee. The Poetry Foundation’s inital enterprise is the venerable Poetry Magazine, founded in 1918.

Selected poems will be available as handouts at the information desk.
