Poems from the Heart: Voices Across Generations is an Intergenerational poetry reading open to everyone.
Writing poetry can be a wonderful way of tapping into our own deeper feelings, while reading or listening to poetry can be a source of pleasure, solace, and inspiration.
We are delighted to have ten poets, ages 7 through 70, share their modes of expression on a theme dear to all of us – voices of the heart.Award winning poet and former Marin Poet Laureate, Prartho Sereno, has been instrumental in putting together this creative program. Through her many years teaching at College of Marin and “Poets in the Schools”, she has helped to keep the light of poetry burning across the generations.
As a special treat, Prartho has invited several fellow Marin Poet Laureates to read from their works.For the poets in our midst, there will be an “Open Mic” after the formal reading. It’s a chance for members of the audience to sign up to read one of their poems. Don’t be shy.
This is a family event. Please bring friends and family members.
