Mary Oliver was one of America’s greatest, most beloved, and often quoted poets.  She was a prolific and decorated poet whose honors include the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.  Her poetry explores the link between nature and the spiritual world.  Her love of the natural world is the soul of her writing.  In the Mary Oliver poetry offerings, we will read, listen, and discuss some of her greatest hits from her book, Devotions, which features Oliver’s work over five decades from 1963 to 2015.  This program also includes a power point presentation of Mary Oliver‘s life.  90 minute program. Presented by Andrea Brandeis.
