Whether saint or scoundrel, famous or obscure, our lives are cut and pasted together with moments of joy and sorrow, grace and grace seeking, falling and rising again. Kathleen Hart, Poet and Innaugural Winner of the Jacopone da Todi Book Prize from Franciscan University Press, explores this “cut-and-paste” theme reflecting on historic figures and her own experiences in her prize winning book entitled “A Cut-and-Paste Country.”

In this poetry reading Ms. Hart offers several selections from her award winning book. Ms. Hart was a special guest of the English Dept. at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
