Baird’s Brown Bag
to explore palliative
nature of poetry
by Sara Toth
Staff writer

   People’s lives are saved
every day by people like doc-
tors and firefighters. Some-
thing one doesn’t hear of of-
ten, though, is a person’s life
being saved by poetry — at
least, metaphorically.
   This week’s poet-in-resi-
dence, Ansie Baird, will be
discussing “What saves Us?
Poetry as Palliative,” at 12:15
p.m. on the front porch of                                                                                                                                                                     Photo by Brittany Ankrom

        brick walk the denomi-
        national houses open
their doors and fire up their
ovens to bring a sweet treat to
all Chautauquans who come
