Sharon Olds reading

Sarah “dragged” me to another poetry reading today. Sarah said Sharon was the first contemporary poet she really liked. When I heard her reading I could tell why, her poetic voice is very similar to Sarah’s. Which is probably why I liked it so much. It was the best poetry reading I have been to thus far. Second place is taken by Billy Collins.

One reason I probably liked it so much is because she read a number of poems that had to do with being a parent which is currently occupying most of my mental processing time. In case you haven’t heard, Sarah and I are expecting our first baby!

I came across an interesting letter from Sharon Olds Here.
