JOHNSON CITY— “Poetry of Hope, Poetry of Resilience” is the focus of a free virtual reading to be hosted Friday, May 1, by East Tennessee State University’s Department of Literature and Language.
This celebration of poetry that inspires, gives solace and helps make sense of these unprecedented times will be held via Zoom beginning at 7 p.m.
Readings will be given by ETSU Poet in Residence Jesse Graves, President Brian Noland and other members of the university community. As Robert Frost put it, “Every poem is a momentary stay against the confusion of the world.”
