Hudson Hall continues the New Virtual Event, ‘Close Readings in a Virtual Space’, with guest, Simone White.  Read through Leslie Scalapino’s “A Sequence” with Simone White and others taking part.

“Simone White, one of our favorite poets, will lead this intimate, virtual group read-through Leslie Scalapino’s “A Sequence.” Neither teaching nor explaining, Simone 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 28, 2020 / 4pm – 5pm
