Fuller Seminary’s Brehm Center hosted Dana Gioia, the Poet Laureate of California and professor of poetry and public culture at the University of Southern California, in April 2016 for a conversation between Gioia and Brehm Center Director Mako Fujimura on the role of poetry in shaping culture. Gioia offered insights from his years as director of the National Endowment for the Arts and shared his own poetry throughout the evening event, which took place at Fuller’s campus in Pasadena, California.
