Virtual Poetry Reading: From France

Event in English with  Moonstone Arts Center.

The poetry in French and English by these accomplished multidisciplinary writers will blow our minds with their unique voices, boost our empathic listening, break down stereotypes, increase international understanding, celebrate linguistic traditions, humanize our multilingual future, and bring us closer to our own inner poetics by challenging the ear of our heart to open to others. No matter what your first language, you carry the global passport of poetry.
