Syracuse University Libraries are pleased to announce a series of free noontime poetry readings this semester called Lunch Time Poems. Hosted by University Professor and poet Stephen Kuusisto, the series will feature noted poets from the Syracuse community. All events are open to students, staff, and the general public.
Modeled on a popular program at the University of California at Berkeley, Lunch Time Poems is an informal brown bag event designed, as Kuusisto says, “to offer us some food for thought in the middle of our busy days—just bring your lunch and your appetite for words.”
American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) will be available for each event. If you have requests for accessibility and accommodations, please contact the Equal Opportunity, Inclusion and Resolution Services (EOIRS) office at 315.443.4018.
The series will kick off on Friday, September 22 with poets Jackie Warren Moore and Stephen Kuusisto. Additional readings will feature SU’s Michael Burkard and poet David Weiss on September 29, Bob Herz and Patrick Williams on October 13, and Georgia Popoff and Phil Memmer on October 20.
