Short Description: 
Poetry across Borders! Tonight on Paula's Picks!

POETRY. The word causes some to run and hide, while fewer and fewer seem to connect with its meaning.

Portland, Oregon. Poets William Stafford, Lawson Inada & Paulann Petersen proved that words lived and flowed, as natural and native as rivers and forests.

Calgary, Canada. Poets Afua Cooper, Pamela Mordecai & Olive Senior proved that words, shackled in a colonial world could empower and inspire freedom.

Poetry matters because it is a tool for helping us to discover who we are ... - Olive Senior

Join Paula the Small tonight for a Winter Membership Drive special edition of Paula's Picks, as she interviews poets Emmett Wheatfall and Wakefield Brewster.

The poets return as her guests to share their gifts of word, history and culture, to prove that poetry transcends and breathes within borders.
