Poetry Reading

The repercussions on society from the pandemic are usually pretty grim.

But Duluth's poet laureate, Gary Boelhower, says poetry reading began a resurgence a couple of years ago, and while no one has surveyed it since the start of the year, he thinks more and more people are finding it an accessible art form that can express the depth of our experience.

After all, Gary says "poetry saved my life."
