Generations: Telling Stories
When three generations share the stage, a metaphorical quilt of familial and cultural lore is stitched together through poems, stories, and recipes. Glenis Redmond, the Peace Center’s Poet-in-Residence, is joined by her mother, Jeanette Redmond, and twin daughters, Celeste and Amber Sherer. Inspired by the tools of her foremothers’ trade – a long line of seamstresses – Glenis Redmond stitches together memories of both beauty and struggle—one word at a time.
The Poetic Conversations series is an opportunity for the community to witness powerful poetry through readings, conversations, and talkbacks with esteemed poets. Moderated by the Peace Center’s award-winning Poet-in-Residence, Glenis Redmond, Poetic Conversations welcome literary giants to the stage and embrace topics that reflect the diversity of our communities. Events are FREE of charge, reaching a broad audience brought together through the power of the written and spoken word.
Poetic Conversations may contain mature language and content.
