The Other Night School – The Anatomy of a Poem: 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

If asked, most people will claim ignorance when it comes to what poetry does and means. Why, though, don’t we ask the more important questions of how it means, where it derives its power? What, in other words, makes a poem tick (like a heart or a bomb)? Join us for this fascinating talk by University of West Georgia School of the Arts Director and Professor of English, Dr. Chad Davidson.


A reception with light refreshments will begin at 6:00 p.m. and the talk will start at 6:30 p.m. Registration is required. To register, please visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-other-night-school-the-anatomy-of-poem-tickets-83261247633
