Poetry Reading - Every Monday 2.00pm - 3.30pm and every Monday

The Poetry Reading session has become popular and we have heard several poetry recitals learning a little about each poet. Choose your favourite poem to be recited to the group, discuss what it means to you and listen to other guest’s favourites. Each week there will be a theme for poetry selections and attendees will choose one classic and one contemporary poem.

This group will meet via ZOOM.

Please send your selected poem to Souad so that we can share with the group beforehand.
