Poetry, Literacy and Democracy

with Nikki Giovanni, Robert Hass and Lewis H. Lapham
Date and Time: 
April 3, 1998 - 7:00PM to 9:00PM
Event Location: 
Poets House, Spring Street

All art forms serve both to express and to transgress cultural values––to articulate and to challenge the ideas that shape a society. Panelists discuss the special role that poetry plays in the development of literacy, the formation and preservation of the democratic ideal, and the give and take of public dialogue in an electronic and media-saturated age.
