On Oct. 15, Fordham's Poets Out Loud launched a collaboration with Poetry Society of America by co-sponsoring the first of a series of annual readings at Fordham's Lincoln Center campus. Poets Henri Cole and Jean Valentine shared their works at a public reading in the 12th-Floor Lounge before an audience that included faculty, Fordham students and area high school students, and members of New York's writing and poetry community.
A discussion among poets and audience followed.
