Denver Woman's Press Club


Colorado Poet Laureate Joseph Hutchison will speak at the DWPC Poetry Event about the poetry of witness. Hutchinson co-edited Malala: Poems for Malala Yousafzai. The anthology consists of tributes from around the world to the Pakistani teenager who was shot by the Taliban for advocating for the right of girls to pursue an education. Hutchison will tell the story of how the 2013 book became a fundraiser for the Malala Fund. The presentation is timely, as Malala is visiting Denver in June.
