Gathering Around Books (The GAB Group)

February 25, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 5:30 pm on day Fourth of the month, repeating until May 29, 2022

4th Friday of each month during happy hour 5:30-6:30 p.m.

This month’s GAB will focus on five poems by two esteemed American poets, Walt Whitman and Maya Angelou. Separated by a century, Whitman and Angelou share a deep regard and hope for democracy, equality, and freedom, a perfect topic for our Zoom gathering on the day after Thanksgiving.

  • Salut Au Monde
  • Song of the Open Road
  • Still I Rise
  • Phenomenal Woman

Find the poems here on pages 3 and 4.

The discussion is open to anyone who loves to read and discuss what one has read with fellow bibliophiles. Register to below to join. You will be sent an automatic Zoom link upon registration.
