Spoken Word Poetry at Narrative Medicine Rounds 9/8

For the past two years, I've been organizing Narrative Medicine Rounds at Columbia, a lecture series (usually) the first Wednesday of every month where writers, scholars, and clinicians come to read from and discuss their work at the interstices of humanities and health care. In the past, I've had Oliver Sacks, Sharon Olds, Alex Kates Shulman, Perri Klass, Julie Salamon, Michael Greenberg and many others.

This Wednesday Sept. 8th, I'm terribly proud to be welcoming Joshua Brandon Bennett, a performance artist and spoken word poet. He's a brilliant intellect and breathtaking performer.

Rounds are free and open to the public!
