Mentor & Mentored with JT Barbarese, Nissa Lee & Laura Bernstein

Moonstone Poetry Series Presents Mentor and Mentored

An intergenerational poetry series that presents both the mentor and the mentored: how does poetry travel from generation to generation, what are the themes, the sounds, what changes and what stays the same. Filmed with a live audience at the PhillyCAM Studio, the program will be edited and broadcast.

    Huge fan of Ms. LEE’s. Probably because we both wear LEE jeans and share the same last name!
