Description:
Words are Colorado Poet Laureate David Mason's instrument, and he plays them with the skill of a master. As the poet laureate, Mason is attempting to visit every county in Colorado for readings, each time recruiting local poets to the stage alongside him. "I go into a community where people might tell me that poetry never interested them, they didn't have it in school, they were always afraid of it, something of that nature. And they will respond to a performance of it very positively. They'll say 'I never heard it that way before.'" Expect Mason's visit to WMPAC on March 9th to include surprise local guests--including our state's own Poet Laureate, Tami Haaland- as well as a perspective-shifting talk about words.
