From Mary to Marilyn, from religious paintings to those little pictures on our computer screens, icons are images that strongly resonate with meaning. And because "icon" in its most literal sense means "an image, simile or symbol," icons are an essential part of what poetry is all about. This reading will present work that engages Iconic figures ranging from the classical to pop culture, in incarnations that range from elegaic to the highly compromised.
Hosted by Nina Corwin. Readers include Maureen Tolman Flannery, Arielle Greenberg, Becca Klaver, Donna Pucciani, Erin Teegarden, and Rachel Jamison Webster. Free and open to the public; refreshments will be served.
