Poetry in the Movies

Monday, June 24th, 7:00-8:00 p.m. in the Collins Room

When we sit down to watch a movie, pop the popcorn, and dim the lights, we’re expecting blockbuster performances, great film scores, side-splitting laughs, or tear-jerking final scenes.

But in many cases, we’re also sitting down to a poetry reading. Wallingford Poet Laureate and massive movie nerd Katie Eber will lead a discussion on poetry in beloved movies, like Dead Poets Society and The Outsiders, and even in movies where you least expect it, like Kindergarten Cop. (Seriously.)

No registration required.
