Life, Love & Memory Loss: A Poet's Perspective

  • Microsoft Auditorium, Seattle Public Library 1000 Fourth Avenue Seattle (map)

Join us as we listen to Northwest poets read ekphrastic poetry, journal entries and other work all inspired by the exhilarating art of individuals living with Alzheimer’s and various forms of dementia.

An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art.  Through the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on the “action” of a painting or sculpture, the poet may amplify and expand its meaning.  The Poetry Foundation
