The Power of Poetry: Simon Armitage


Join poet Laureate Simon Armitage for a poetry reading and conversation about creativity, place, and a navigating life as a poet.

For too long, reading poetry has been considered a luxury, but in these trying times, the act of slowing down to enjoy a good poem should be considered as a necessity.  Simon Armitage has dedicated his life to understanding our world through prose, and in 2019 was named Britain’s poet Laureate. Join Simon Armitage for a live reading and an evening of conversation about how he’ll continue to use poetry to seek truth and justice.
