Poetry at the Edge of Belief

Tuesday, April 20th 2021, 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Online Event, 2400 Ridge Rd Berkeley, CA 94709

“I find out everything I believe through writing,” the poet Alice Notley said.

For National Poetry Month, join poet-pastors Elizabeth Robinson and Nate Klug for a reading and discussion at the intersection of poetry and belief. They’ll share some work by poets they admire, and talk about how poetic innovation might foster spiritual discovery, and vice versa.

Elizabeth Robinson is the pastor of Orinda Community Church (UCC), and the author of sixteen books, most recently Rumor from Free Verse Editions/Parlor Press.  She has been the winner of the National Poetry Series for Pure Descent (Sun & Moon), and the Fence Modern Poets Prize for Apprehend.  Robinson’s mixed genre meditation, On Ghosts, was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award in Poetry.

Nate Klug is the pastor of Arlington Community Church (UCC), and the author of Hosts and Guests (Princeton Series of Contemporary Poets, 2020).
