Free talk:

“How to Read a Poem” by Jonathan Galassi

Saturday, July 13th @ 11am – Old Point Schoolhouse

Why do many people find words arranged in lines more challenging than the same ideas set out in prose?

In this free talk Jonathan Galassi, Chairman of Farrar, Straus and Giroux, will explore several examples that reveal the mystique and the magic—and fun—of poems.


Jonathan is the author of three acclaimed poetry collections, a translator of Italian poetry, and a novelist.

He is a longtime lover of Orient.


OHS is thrilled to have Jonathan share his love of poetry with the community.
