One thought on “Seminars & Workshops

  1. Lisa,
    I very much enjoyed and was quite taken by your meditation on complexion, coffee and tea, “Hungarianness” last night at BB – etc. I love the complexity of the work via the interplay of the several themes. And something important is being said here. Would you be kind enough to send me the ms. or the publication page(s) containing the poem? I am Steve Goldman, a poet and writer, and we spoke briefly in the vestibule of BB , and you gave me this website.

    Collegially and with thanks,
