Students of all experience levels currently enrolled in grades 9 to 12 are invited to a monthly poetry discussion group. In a conversation moderated by Poetry Foundation youth services assistant David Gilmer, teens will discuss well-known classics as well as contemporary work. The Teen Book Club strives to develop and refine each participant’s ability to read, understand, and appreciate poetry. In April, the Teen Book Club will discuss Patricia Smith’s Blood Dazzler. All participants will engage with the month’s assigned reading and assess its impact on their lives. Space is limited to 15 participants.
