“Confronting Difficult Truths” Online Poetry Reading

September 10 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

  • In a live poetry reading, four local poets will read their timely work which challenges the status quo and our preconceptions about immigrants, the marginalized, and our conflicted past as a nation. The featured poets include Randy Bridgeman, Christine Higgins, Bonnie Naradzay, and Maggie Rosen. Go to https://zoom.us/j/91789237144 to see the reading and take part in a Q&A.

Christine has received two Maryland State Arts Council awards and is the author of two chapbooks and a full-length collection titled Hallow.

    Bonnie has led writing workshops at a homeless shelter and a retirement center, and her work has been published in New Letters, Split This Rock, and other publications. Maggie’s poetry has been published in a chapbook and featured in Little Patuxent Review, Cider Press Review, and other journals.
