Joshua Bennett

On February 26, 2019, Bennett visited Good Counsel to speak to the community, sharing his literary prowess and his various experiences throughout his lifetime. His poems and the energy he radiated were inspiring. He was an easy going person who made you feel like you have known him your whole life.  I enjoyed speaking with him and listening to him share his literary genius. His poems were moving. How he spoke and the images he used were captivating and quite distinctive. In the end, it was a very good experience, and I’m so thankful that I had the chance to partake in such an incredible experience with such an extraordinary person.
