Worcester-born Pulitzer Prize winner and U.S. Poet Laureate Stanley Kunitz’s poems dance artfully between memory and imagination. This course offers participants an opportunity to discuss Kunitz’s poems as they relate to the city, where themes of love and loss, rebirth and transformation took root. One session will meet at his boyhood home, designated as a Literary Landmark (www.ala.org), where we will meet with Carol Stockmal, friend of Stanley Kunitz.

GROUP LEADER:  Judith Ferrara, PhD volunteered at the Stanley Kunitz boyhood home. This experience resulted in her ongoing study of his life and poetry. Visit www.PaletteAndPen.com and http://kunitzhome.org.
