The Poetic Apothecary: Poems for Healing and Comfort
Forks Branch Library Friday, April 19 6-8pm
Just as a cup of tea can settle and sooth us, the right poem at the right time can be a powerful sustaining remedy.
Poet and performer Judith Adams explores poetry’s restorative powers by reciting and exploring poems that help us understand grief, fear, sadness, loss, and much more. By sharing her love of poetry, Adams encourages audiences to share poems that have deeply touched their lives and discusses how writing poetry can be a potent medicine for us all.
