February 11: Poetry of the Body
Join us in the Writers House for an evening of poetry and performance to celebrate and reflect on the body. What does society say about our bodies? What do you want to say about them, about what you love or struggle with about your own body? Come recite a poem or story, sing a song (your own or someone else’s), or come to support and enjoy.
This event sponsored by the Office of Wellness Education.
