“How to Read a Poem” – A free talk (cancelled!)

Saturday, July 13 | 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

We apologize for any inconvenience, but due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been cancelled.


Why do many people find words arranged in lines more challenging than the same ideas set out in prose? Jonathan Galassi, Chairman of Farrar, Straus and Giroux, will explore several examples that reveal the mystique and the magic—and fun—of poems.


Jonathan is the author of three acclaimed poetry collections, a translator of Italian poetry, and a novelist. He is a longtime lover of Orient.


OHS is thrilled to have Jonathan share his love of poetry with the community.
