Main Library Poetry Circle

February 18 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

| Free

Join us for monthly poetry discussions, led by docents from the UA Poetry Center. The event is free, and no preparation or knowledge of poetry is necessary.

Everyone is welcome to attend as we read from favorite poets, learn about new poets and share our views. Each participant will receive a packet of the poems to be read and discussed, sourced from the Poetry Center’s world-renowned collection.

Our discussion on February 18 will focus on the works of Arizona Poet Laureate Alberto Rios. Alberto Álvaro Ríos, born in 1952 in Nogales, AZ, is the author of ten books and chapbooks of poetry, three collections of short stories, and a memoir. Mr. Rios will appear with United States Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera on a panel discussion at the Tucson Festival of Books, March 11 and 12, 2017.
