Due to COVID-19, this will now be a VIRTUAL book club hosted by Zoom conference.
This is a free event. No purchase is necessary to attend, but you can purchase the book ahead of time on our website here.
Each month, Poetry Club meets to discuss one must-read book of poems, whether a timeless classic or an award-winning contemporary. Led by Napa poet Kathleen Patterson, who has been an enthusiastic book club member since its beginning, meetings are open to all levels of poetry readers, both the curious and the committed.
Christmas poems by the Nobel Laureate
To Him, all things seemed enormous: His mother's breast, the
of the ox's nostrils, Caspar, Balthazar, Melchior, the team
of Magi, the presents heaped by the door, ajar.
He was but a dot, and a dot was the star.
--from "Star of the Nativity"
