God Talk: A Poetry Reading with Jessica Jacobs and Philip Metres

You’re welcome to poetry reading featuring Jessica Jacobs and Philip Metres, April 3, 7pm, at John Carroll University (Rodman Hall Meeting Room A, unless we need a bigger venue). This reading will be a sort of dual book release and conversation about poetry, ancestral inheritance, and faith (some may know the funny story about our twin covers).…/two-poets-one-jewish-and...
