Join us for a poetry reading featuring Margaret Noodin, Alexandria Delcourt, and Franklin K.R. Cline, along with former Wisconsin poets laureate, Denise Sweet and Kimberly Blaeser!
As a member of the Poetry Coalition, Woodland Pattern is hosting this program as part of Because We Come From Everything: Poetry & Migration, a series of Coalition-wide events in which each member organization will bring its unique mission to the task of presenting programs and projects on the theme of migration.
Woodland Pattern's program, in partnership with the Milwaukee Native American Literary Cooperative, will place emphasis on the history of forced migrations of people indigenous to what is now the United States, as well as related contemporary issues, such as tribal sovereignty, ecology, and language revitalization efforts. Each poet will present work variously focused on these concerns.
