”What emerges is a deep, heartfelt portrait of a family struggling with its place in history, and a young woman hoping to be the fulfillment of that struggle. This is, in the end, a novel about the burden of being the first of your kind — a burden you do not always survive.” The New York Times Book Review. This program is part of the NEA Big Read, National Endowment for the Arts.

Enduring, romantic, and erotic love, or heartbreak, break-ups, and unrequited love.  To celebrate National Poetry Month we will look at poems from around the world about the many kinds of love.  Please bring a favorite or a newly discovered poem about one of these topics to read aloud.
