About this event
Join Amy and her special guest poet Rosalynde Vas Dias to discuss Why Poetry? at our hybrid virtual and in-person meetup event at the Washington Park Library. Virtual participants will receive an email with a Zoom link on the morning of the discussion. Join us however you are able to— in person or online!
We encourage everyone to bring along or share your favorite poems/poets in our open discussion!

Rosalynde Vas Dias's poetry has appeared in Crazyhorse, The Cincinnati Review, West Branch, The Pinch, Laurel Review, The Collagist, The Four Way Review, and elsewhere. Her first book, Only Blue Body , won the 2011 Robert Dana Award offered by Anhinga Press. In the fall of 2014, a selection of her linked poems, ‘Sweet Herald’, was a Campbell Corner Distinguished Entry.
Rosalynde Vas Dias is a world builder. In this stunning debut collection of elegant poems, Only Blue Body interrogates both the body and the soul through kinetic language and with wicked intellect. Vas Dias's poems navigate the worlds between reality and fable seamlessly, and she manages to entertain us along the way. This collection seduces and alerts, invents and puns, and always pays off with a world all will want to inhabit. This is an original voice rising above the masses, contained in a brilliant collection. -- A. Van Jordan
