Do you enjoy reading, but find yourself avoiding poetry because it’s just too hard to understand? You’re not alone, says Minnesota poet Kathleen Jesme. “Many people would like to enjoy poetry, but they feel put off by it,” said Jesme, an award-winning poet from Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. Jesme, who has published five books of poems, will be giving a one-hour workshop on “How to Read a Poem” at Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts.
The workshop is made possible by an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board.
