Ellen Bass, Jane Hirshfield & Marie Howe
Benefit Poetry Reading for SHE!
September 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
THREE EXTRAORDINARY POETS JOIN HEARTS AND VOICES TO SUPPORT & CELEBRATE THE COURAGEOUS GIRLS OF THE S.H.E FUND! WITH SPECIAL GUEST, MELANIE DEMORE
Ellen Bass: “Bass shows us that we are as radiant as we are ephemeral, that in transience glistens resilient history and the remarkable fluidity of connection. Following her musings on suicide and generosity, desire and repetition—it becomes lucidly clear that Bass is not only a poet but also a philosopher and a storyteller.” —Briana Shemroske, Booklist
Jane Hirshfield: Jane Hirshfield’s poetry speaks to the central issues of human existence—desire and loss, impermanence and beauty, the many dimensions of our connection with others and the wider community of creatures and objects with which we share our lives. Demonstrating with quiet authority what it means to awaken into the full capacities of attention, her work sets forth a hard-won affirmation of our human fate.
Marie Howe: “Marie Howe’s poetry is luminous, intense, and eloquent, rooted in an abundant inner life. Her long, deep-breathing lines address the mysteries of flesh and spirit, in terms accessible only to a woman who is very much of our time and yet still in touch with the sacred.” —Stanley Kunitz
