Poetry Reading TODAY (Wednesday)

Hi guys — I just heard about a poetry reading happening tomorrow in the Grand Salon in the Chateau. The poet’s name is Fiona Sampson. I don’t know much else about the reading, but it’s at 4:30, and if you have a bit of free time in the afternoon it will probably make a lovely addition to our sliding into poetry this unit. You can read one of Sampson’s poems, and a bit about the poet, here.
