Join us each month for this drop-in discussion group focusing on diversity, equity, and inclusion through the lens of poetry.
Each month we will gather to read a poem (or other short literature) together and discuss its challenges and inspirations to how we understand our community, our world, and ourselves. Library staff and guests will lead each discussion, beginning with a reading of the selected work. Each month’s piece will be shared with registered attendees the morning of the discussion.
This month our discussion will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, which granted most women in the U.S. the right to vote.
This discussion was inspired by the work of the Idaho Women 100 campaign, an initiative by Idaho Women in Leadership and the Idaho State Historical Society to honor Idaho’s early role in the women’s suffrage movement and to shape the future of women’s leadership in Idaho. The initiative is working to recognize and celebrate the influence of women in Idaho over the past 100 years and their contributions to the political, cultural, economic, academic, social, and civic fields.
