Sheri Hall and Jessica Ayala, 2 Poets: Life Like It Is
Reading the history books will make you think history is shaped by political leaders, generals, people’s movements and the like, but it is the artists, the novelist, THE POETS, that carry the heartbeat of history in their hands. It is the telling of the story that moves people, nations, mountains. Sheri Hall, Samantha Slupski and Jessica Ayala are 3 Poets who give us Life Like It Is and inspire those who raise their families, go to work every day, build communities and so much more.
Host Margot Patterson will spend the hour with Sheri Hall and Jessica Ayala. Their words paint the community and our lives as they are today and the dreams of what it can be tomorrow. Please listen in and open up your hearts and minds to these wordsmiths.
