Billy Collins calls poems “chapels for ordinary experience”. This is a meet up to share poems and poets who have touched you or galvanised you, from classics such as Wordsworth or Dickinson, to contemporary poets such as Tony Hoagland or Mary Karr.
Bring one or a small number of poems – not your own, just those you treasure by other poets – and share them with the group. There will be plenty of time to discuss the meaning of the poem and digress at every and any tangent.
Poetry Book Club is hosted by Thomas Wilson and Duc Dau.
