Lunch & Learn: Processing the Pandemic Through Poetry with Author Ari Satok 🖥

With poems about everything from grocery shopping to grief to Grandma’s never-ending challenges with Zoom, Ari will discuss how the book came to be and then read poems from it, engaging the participants in reflective exercises and discussions on their own experiences of the pandemic.
