Event Description

Can someone really be saved by a poem? Kim Rosen's answer is a resounding "Yes!" Poetry, our most ancient form of prayer, is especially needed in these times of global and personal uncertainty. In fact, poetry's popularity seems to be soaring in direct relationship to the growing instability of the world around us. Kim Rosen will be giving a reading from her new book, "Saved by a Poem: The Transformative Power of Words". The reading will be interwoven with inspirational poetry from around the world.
