Savor an evening of beauty and reflection, anchoring us in the hope that both poetry and music offer to us. Join poet Michael Dennis Browne as he interweaves music clips and words in a virtual reading from his new book Build Me a Boat, which gathers words that Browne has written for music over the past fifty years. Some are poems written with music in mind; others are lyrics, song cycles, songs for children, and libretti written as he collaborated with a number of different composers. The result is a volume that sits comfortably between poetry and music, lyrical and rhythmic and memorable.
This virtual reading will be held via Zoom. See program page for online course expectations and details.
