Join us virtually or in-person for a discussion of Katz’ latest work, Limits of Light.

The Limits of Light is a collection of narrative poems from Susan A. Katz that explores the tales of Greek Mythology and their contemporary messages. From Apollo, who was thwarted in love, to Scylla who betrays her father for lust, to Icarus who strives to fly to the sun, only to fall to his death, the tales of the gods unfold in Katz’s compelling and dramatic narrative poetry. This program will be offered both in-person with limited seating and online via Zoom.

A nationally and internationally published poet, Katz’s work has appeared in numerous anthologies, journals, and literary magazines. With the publication of “The Limits of Light”, she has published four books of poetry, and co-authored two textbooks with music specialist, Judith A. Thomas, espousing the need to incorporate the arts into school curriculum.

For more than 30 years, Katz worked for The New York State Poets in Public Service, and then, with music/movement specialist Judith A. Thomas, conducted student/teacher poetry workshops in the United States and Canada.
