“From Bacchus to Berryman, from Li Po to Dorothy Parker, drink and lyric flights have danced a long, sometimes loving, sometimes leery waltz,” Yatchisin says. “This event will attest to the multi-faceted ways poets have found inspiration, solace, and yes, sometimes sickness in the bottle. Now in its sixth year, this event makes clear just how fun poetry can be, and how the magic of words can help unite us even in a time like this when we are physically isolated.”
