Patricia Spears Jones works truly toward her title in poems and friendship — in her newest work, The Beloved Community, she imagines a horizon of dignity and care, and writes with clear-eyed candor of the incremental effort required. Change accrues over daily moments of effort and attention, with poems of rich, lyrical regard.
Featuring a reading from Patricia Spears Jones with music performances from Jason Kao Hwang, Janice Lowe, and Luke Stewart.
We hope you can join us for a pre-event reception at 7 pm!
This in-person event will also be livestreamed via The Poetry Project's YouTube.
