Crossing generational gaps with words, ideas, musings–writers from both programs have responded to each other’s work. How do we each see? What do we each have to say? Celebrate the words we create and share! YWLA Young Poets Society and Creative Writing Class teacher Michelle Grajeda, and their 2017-18 Poet in Residence, Jim LaVilla-Havelin (who is also the instructor for the Bihl Haus Goldens), will read from their works as well. Join us for an exploration of pasts, futures and the things that bring us all together. 210.383.9723
