Hudson Hall Presents Close Readings in a Virtual Space, May 14


Hudson Hall is hosting a New Virtual Event, ‘Close Readings in a Virtual Space’. Read through Jay Wright’s poem “The Homecoming Singer” together with poet Rigoberto Gonzáles and others taking part.

Rigoberto Gonzáles, one of our favorite poets, will lead this intimate, virtual group read-through of Jay Wright’s poem “The Homecoming Singer.” Neither teaching nor explaining, Rigoberto will serve as your expert tour-guide to explore this poem as a group. Whether you are already well-versed in the close reading of poems, or have never been quite sure you’ve been “getting it,” this “close reading in a virtual space” will provide a digital gathering for everyone to take a refreshing deep dive into this single poem.

The event will last about an hour, and will conclude with a brief reading of poetry by our special guest poet.

This is a challenging time for all of us, but poetry offers us a fortifying focus. Talking through a poem together with a group of fellow readers just might provide a bit of the balm we all need.

DATE/TIME: Thursday, May 14, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

COST: Free
