Alzheimer's Poetry Project is launching a weekly Poetry for Life: Call-in Show on Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. CT starting February 25. Join Gary Glazner and Dr. Fabu Carter for a 30-minute-long event that sounds like an old-fashioned radio show. They will share funny poems, happy poems, well-loved poems, poems that make you want to dance, love poems, silly poems, and more. The program is suitable for all ages.

Join by calling (609) 663-1816 on Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. No access code is needed. If you want to talk, press *6.
