Hosted by Janet Chance '87

Connecting through Poetry will be the opening event for our 2020–21 series, Cafe on the Crum. Join us via Zoom on Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. Eastern! 
We will read aloud works by Jericho Brown, Joan Larkin, Audre Lorde, and Ocean Vuong; reflect on our own personal stories; and learn about each other by sharing in small groups.  

The first in a series, the LGBTQ+ Alumnx Network will host arts & culture conversations approximately once every six weeks from September 2020 through August 2021.
