Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 2016, Missoula's Open Country Press published Verde Que Te Quiero Verde, an anthology of poems inspired by the work of poet Federico Garcia Lorca. This event will feature brief readings from five poets included in the anthology: Henrietta Goodman, Adrian Kien, Rachel Mindell, Karin Schalm, and Ellen Welcker. In a discussion following the readings, the poets will explore how and why Lorca’s poems influenced them and how the poem featured in the anthology is similar to or different from their other work in theme, subject, and style.
