The salon conversation will be held on the 109th birthday of Hyam Plutzik (1911-1962). The movie is 55 minutes long (and can be screened at your leisure from July 10-13) - and will be followed by a conversation (on July13 @ 7 PM) that focuses on Plutzik's work, and culminates The Betsy's seven week salon series, dedicated to 'Zen and the Art of Writing in America'.  Hyam Plutzik's lines - 'Out of my life I fashioned a fistful of words. When I opened my hands they flew away', are the opening and closing lines imprinted on The Betsy's Poetry Rail that embrace the work of a dozen poets that shaped Miami culture and history. A new collection of Plutzik’s work, by 14 Spanish-speaking poets from around the world, edited by Dr. George Benson (Middlebury College) with a Forward by Obama Inaugural Poet Richard Blanco,  will be released in 2020 by Suburbano Ediciones.
