Poetry, that oldest form of writing - romantic, lamenting, subversive, epic, dirty, funny, worshipful, zen - is making a popular comeback. L.A. poet Arminé Iknadossian moderates our monthly look at new collections.
In March, we will read and discuss Virgin: Poems by Analisia Sotelo
The book is included in the price of your ticket.
