Poetry lovers convened at the Minás Gallery and Boutique on Sunday, April 1, to celebrate the launch of Isaac Rehert’s renaissance. The collection is compiled of poetry Rehert wrote for a lifelong-learning center poetry class in Baltimore and concerns the real-life experiences of an older person exploring what may still be achieved after retirement.
Rehert began to study poetry after retiring from a long and successful career at the Baltimore Sun, and he has also been teaching the course “How to Read a Poem” at the Renaissance Institute, a division of the College of Notre Dame. He has participated in Johns Hopkins University and Towson University writing workshops and taught a course in the Masters in Professional Writing Program at Towson.
Clarinda Harriss, director of BrickHouse Books, hosted the launch event. Special thanks go out to Bill Hughes for taking and sharing his beautiful photos of the event.
