Even if the Whole World is Burning – Celebrating WS Merwin

November 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

merwinDear Friends, Leaves on the maple tree in my front yard have begun their flaming, drifting fall. What a good time to celebrate the irreplaceable WS Merwin whose life and works model the artist as activist. My presentation will be about how Merwin, Snyder, (and a bit about Robert Graves) have responded to war and its impacts on the earth. Do poets have any influence at all? Come hear some stories you’ve probably never heard!

Celebrate the distinguished poet, W.S. Merwin with a screening of Even Though the Whole World is Burning, a documentary about his life and work, presented and accompanied by a panel and readings from Susan Suntree, Cheri Colby [Davis] Langdell, Tim Langdell, and Daniel E. Lambert.

Refreshments, readings, and selections from the award-winning documentary.

You won’t want to miss this!

With dedication to peace (life!),
