Finding “We:” How Poems help us Explore the “I,” the “Other,” and the Communal

February 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A poetry reading and conversation with Steven Ratiner, Arlington’s Poet Laureate.

We, the people. . .  It’s a foundational American idea: that a fiercely independent people can, at the very same time, embrace their commonality.  The very concept of we is an essential human experience as well, and one that seems endangered during these socially and politically fraught times.  Steven Ratiner, Arlington’s Poet Laureate, will offer us a poetry reading and conversation about how he has discovered a deepened sense of both his individual voice and its connection to our vast interconnectedness through writing and reading poems.  He’ll speak about his Red Letter Project and the partnership with a range of community organizations to send out a new poem each week to a community of readers.  Zoom program, register at
