Grab your pillow and blanket and put on pjs if you like. Tell everyone you are heading to Poetry Nap. They’ll understand. Arrive, lie down, and float away into immersive tales of enchanting whimsy, curiosity and adoration guided by Lady and Lord Dosis.
Live shows will resume when we can, in the meantime, enjoy our new podcast. We are so grateful to have had all the live shows we did since 2017 from a captivating nineteenth century cabin on a Norway Fjord to the New York Poetry Festival to our beloved home in Berkeley of Rudramandir.
We were selling out 100-person shows in January and February 2020; we love you, too!!! We look forward to returning with you in person when the time comes. We’ll have to have extra big hugs to make up for lost time.
