Tuesday, May 9 @ 7:00PM (ET) - Online: Poet and educator Brian Evans-Jones will explore the possibilities of mirrors in our lives and poems. Mirrors and poems have much in common, being both human-made objects that can show us truths about ourselves and the world, or let us look at things slantwise—maybe even into our blind spots. They invite us to explore who we are, what it means to be a person, and how we perceive. But how much should we trust what we see in them? Visit for more details and to RSVP for Zoom.

We look forward to hearing from you!
