Hello all, welcome to Professor Emeritus Keith Ratzlaff’s poetry reading. When it comes time for questions if you would please post your questions using the chat function at the bottom middle of your screen that would be great. We will relay the questions to Keith here in the Mills Gallery. Due to feedback issues everyone tuning in through zoom will be muted. Thank you for understanding.
