Poetry Is Not a Luxury Bookclub

  • 551 Carpenter Lane 1919 (map)

Poetry Is Not a Luxury is a monthly book club led by Elliott batTzedek, MFA. Together we'll be reading the best contemporary poets, and exploring how they use their work to explore the most urgent social issues. Each month we'll focus on a different book, along with individual poems from other poets addressing similar issues. We will meet fourth Wednesdays of the month from 7:00-8:30pm.

July's book: Bright Dead Things by Ada Limon.
