Join St. John’s Episcopal Church for a Poetry Reading Series featuring Thomas Lynch (5/5), Spencer Reece (5/19), Barbara Hamby (5/26), and Molly McCully Brown (rescheduled for 6/9). These four artists will invite you to look at the world and your faith in new and surprising ways.
NOTE: Due to a scheduling conflict, Molly McCully Brown will be unable to join us as previously scheduled on Wednesday, May 12. Instead, Fr. Dave Killeen will read from his poetry and reflect on the stories and the faith behind his words. Molly McCully Brown will read from her work on June 9th.
Classes are free and open to all via Zoom:

Thomas Lynch is a poet who has worked as a funeral director since 1974. Molly McCully Brown, a disabled poet, writes eloquently of her faith, relationship with her own body, and what it is like to yearn for your twin who died shortly after birth. Before Spencer Reece became an Episcopal priest, he sold clothes at Brooks Brothers. Barbara Hamby, who teaches at FSU, has written poems such as “How to Pray” and “Ode on Satan’s Power.” Whether you are a literary nerd like Fr. Dave Killeen, who will introduce our world-class writers, or dipping your toe in the waters of poetry for the very first time, get ready to go on a wild and fascinating ride.
