Lisa White performs An Afternoon in the Stacks, a poem by Mary Oliver.
From Lisa: “Mary Oliver’s poetry feels more accessible to me than most poetry. Her style is so straightforward. Though I particularly appreciate the way she writes about the natural world, the setting of “An Afternoon in the Stacks” resonates with me, as someone who has a passion for books and libraries. Although the language is fairly plain, there are layers of concepts (such as connection—between a writer and a reader, how our actions impact others, etc.). Each time I read it I get more out of it.”
