The book group will meet to celebrate Poetry Night. This month’s book is Mary Oliver’s New and Selected Poems (in newer editions, it is designated as Volume 1). Participants are asked to select one poem from the book to read aloud or to bring a poem by any UU poet to read. The list of UU poets includes Robert Burns, Conrad Aiken, e.e. cummings, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Carolyn McDade, Amy Lowell, James Russell Lowell, Sylvia Plath, Carl Sandberg, May Sarton, Richard Waring, Dawud Wharnsey, and William Carlos Williams. Please email Anne Stuart at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm attendance if you are interested in participating.
Looking ahead: the book selection for November will be The Leisure Seeker by Michael Zadoorian
