"The lunch hour series provided me with an intense, first hand, visceral experience with poetry that I never felt while simply reading what pen had put to paper." "The lunch hour series provided me with an intense, first hand, visceral experience with poetry that I never felt while simply reading what pen had put to paper. Although poetry is powerful when it is read in silence, the lunch hour series showed me that you can experience a poem in many different ways. In that, hearing the poems read by their authors allowed the words to dance in my mind and my soul -it is a one of a kind experience that students from all disciplines could surely enjoy as well."
