Event Details

Haiku master Matsuo Bashō once wrote, “Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.” Since the birth of the written word, poets have crafted personal stories that complicate our understanding of what it means to be home. In this hour-long presentation, performer and scholar Dr. Adam Henze shares poems about big cities, small towns, and the search for home on the roads between them. Adam will read influential works about the hospitals, schools, churches, and prisons in our communities, weaving in his own original poems and stories about his journeys throughout the state of Indiana. Poetry is an engaging way to explore how issues impact us as people, making this an ideal presentation for teenagers and adults to consider the topics that connect and divide us as urban and rural communities.
