Moonstone Presents Poetry At PhillyCAM


Moonstone Poetry Series Presents Mentor and Mentored

An intergenerational poetry series that presents both the mentor and the mentored: how does poetry travel from generation to generation, what are the themes, the sounds, what changes and what stays the same. Filmed with a live audience at the PhillyCAM Studio, the program will be edited and broadcast.
