Poetry Potluck: Verse in Good Taste
HoCoPoLitSo opens its literary season November 5th with a special program to celebrate its 30th year of providing a writer-in-residence to the Howard County public schools. The 2021 Lucille Clifton Reading Series Poetry Potluck also honors Clifton, who served as HoCoPoLitSo’s first writer-in-residence. Four local poets who served as HoCoPoLitSo’s literary ambassadors will read and discuss their food-inspired poetry. The program, beginning at 7 p.m., will be live-streamed from kitchens of former writers-in-residence Sandra Beasley, Steven Leyva, Alan King, and Naomi Ayala, this year’s poet in the schools. Presented live, with technical and artistic support from HCC’s Arts Collective, the evening includes an audience question and answer session.
