“A Larger Yes:  Poetry As A Vessel of Discovery, Mindfulness, Expansion and Engagement” – a presentation and reading by poet Jane Hirshfield
Kauai Marriott Resort Hotel Luau Grounds
This event includes lunch and reading; it’s open to the public & ticketed; register in advance at
In this afternoon session, Hirshfield will explore both her own poems and writing practice and the larger ways poems can serve our current age and lives: as an invitation to go beyond impasse into more tender, more supple ways of seeing, thinking and feeling. More than ever, poetry can serve as testimony, witness and reminder of our embodied interconnection and birth-right compassion. ETSF invites you to attend this special engagement which will be filmed and featured in future productions and educational programs.
Jane Hirshfield, whose poems have been called “passionate and radiant” by the New York Times Book Review and named “among the modern masters” by The Washington Post, is the author of eight poetry books, including The Beauty, long-listed for the 2015 National Book Award. Her honors include fellowships from the Guggenheim and Rockefeller foundations, the National Endowment for the Arts, and The Academy of American Poets. A former chancellor of The Academy of American Poets, Hirshfield’s poems appear in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, The Times Literary Supplement, The Guardian, The New York Review of Books, Poetry, and ten volumes of The Best American Poetry. She has taught at Stanford, UC Berkeley, Bennington’s MFA Seminars, and numerous writing conferences. Hirshfield was recently elected this year to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences. Her ninth poetry collection, Ledger, will appear from Knopf in early 2020.
