Twyla Hansen Poetry Reading & Discussion

Twyla’s poetry covers significant emotional territory while remaining firmly grounded in the landscape. From memories of the isolation and beauty of growing up on a farm to the economic and cultural forces waged against family farming, her poems are alternately sad, sweet, funny, and moving.
