WRITERS CAFE LOGO-REAL-WEBIt’s the last Writers’ Cafe show of a quarter that has been challenging in many ways for the UCSB community. Perie Longo, the author of four books of poems–most recently Baggage Claim–is also the former president of the Poetry Therapy Association and served as Santa Barbara’s Poet Laureate from 2007-2009. There’s no better writer to talk about the links between poetry, peace, and accessing universal emotions than Perie. This show airs at noon on Tuesday, June 17, 2014. Writers’ Cafe is hosted by Santa Barbara Poet Laureate Chryss Yost as part of UCSB Student Affairs Academic Initiatives.
