Caltech Poetry Club News and Notes February 2008

Caltech Poetry Club, a fledgling group of students, faculty, and Caltech community members, joined by guest local poets from the Pasadena area, meets each week on the Red Door Cafe, on the Caltech campus, Fridays 4:15 to 5:15. Discussion and workshop of poems from the group, writing sessions at inspiring spots on the beautiful campus, and readings of other poets and commentary have given the group a rich and varied beginning. Started in October, 2008, we've met each week, sharing the exciting scientific, natural and poetic environment of the Institute. Currently, each week we are reading together from the book "Now & Then" by Robert Hass, a year of poetry commentary, almanac style, written in the 90's for syndication in San Francisco and other major city newspapers. Last week we discussed Korean Poetry, this week the focus is Denise Levertov.
