Seasons of Sharing – Poetry Reading

In the book Seasons of Sharing six global partners create poetry that is immediate, intimate, and modern, in an ancient poetic form. While exploring the richness of seasons, the book metaphorically visits incidents such as the Arab Spring, climate change, and urban violence.  Joyce Brinkman, one of the partners and former Indiana Poet Laureate, joins us for a reading of some of the poems from the book and will share thoughts about collaboration.
