Out of this World

A Poetry Reading from Outer Space: 100 Poems

Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium, St. Johnsbury, Vermont

October 7th at 7pm

Join us for a poetry reading with planetarium visuals:

Throughout human history, poetry has provided stories about what people observe in the sky. Stars, planets, comets, the moon, and space travel are used as metaphors for our feelings of love, loneliness, adventurousness, and awe. Editor Midge Goldberg and contributors Robert Crawford and Martin Elster will read from the anthology “Outer Space: 100 Poems,” published by Cambridge University Press, which includes poets, astronomers, and scientists from the 12th century BCE to today, from all around the world.

$15-25 cash/check suggested donation goes to the instructor.

Note that this is not a Poetry Society of Vermont event, but is organized by our friends at the Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium.
