Humanities Washington presents – The Poetic Apothecary: Poems for Healing and Comfort with Judith Adams

Poetry Reading/Spoken Word

Just as a cup of tea can settle and soothe us, the right poem at the right time can be a powerful sustaining remedy. Poet and performer Judith Adams explores poetry’s restorative powers by reciting and exploring poems that help us understand grief, fear, sadness, loss, and much more. By sharing her love of poetry, Adams encourages audiences to share poems that have deeply touched their lives and discusses how writing poetry can be a potent medicine for us all. Judith Adams is an English-born poet who has lived in the United States since 1976. Adams has published four books of poetry, conducted poetry workshops, recorded several albums of her work, and published her poems in magazines and anthologies. Adams has held readings at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, the Frye Art Museum, and Third Place Books. Adams lives on Whidbey Island. [Via Humanities Washington]
