Poetry, Memory, and Art with Jenny Kander

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

2:30 PM3:45 PM

Come to this afternoon conversation with elder poet and textile artist Jenny Kander. She will talk about her life of words and art, and discuss how her creative practice has supported her in later life. A well-regarded elder in Bloomington’s poetry circle, in recent years she has mixed words, stories, and needlework, to make narrative dolls that enable her to share stories about humanity that are both humorous and hard. Interspersed in her poems and stories are biographical reflections and personal memories. Themester 2019 – Remembering and Forgetting, an initiative of the IU College of Arts and Sciences, will sponsor the event, which will be free and open to the public.
