Celebrated poet Carolyn Forché, perhaps best-known for coining the term “poetry of witness” and for her groundbreaking anthology, Against Forgetting: Twentieth-Century Poetry of Witness, joins local Hedgebrook poets and performers, including Karen Finneyfrock, Tara Hardy, Storme Webber, and Rose McAleese, to celebrate Hedgebrook’s 25th anniversary with an electrifying evening of poetry and song. Presented by Hedgebrook.
