“Great poetry can be like spending time with the grandeur of nature, and really, in a way, having beauty speak to you,” says poet Daniel Ladinsky, who is well known for his renditions of the works of 14th century Persian lyric poet, Hafiz.
Ladinsky recently published A Year with Hafiz: Daily Contemplations, and will present these poems during a post-Valentine’s Day event at Malaprop’s, along with local poet Tracey Schmidt and musician Chris Rosser. (Read the full print-feature here.)
Because the Saturday, Feb 18 reading event quickly sold out, a second reading has been added. That event takes place Sunday, Feb. 19, 5:30 p.m. at Malaprop’s. $10 per person includes a $5 Malaprop’s gift card.
