Following a format where both poets read individual work associated with a shared theme, the capacity filled-room, with several audience members forced to stand, was captivated and enthralled with the poignancy and vigor expressed in the selected readings.  Of particular note was the two closing poems one from each poet that drove home the multi-hued, diverse, affirming, and qualitative characteristics that define and shape the strength and character of women.
