This month (we hear from 3 local poets on the last Thursday of most months) we’ll hear from Sarah Bokich, whose collection Rocking Chair at the End of the World was recently released, Vargus Pike, whose July Song was published after he wrote a poem a day through July, and Tricia Knoll, whose Broadfork Farm was just published by the local Poetry Box Press.
April is National Poetry Month, and to celebrate, we will be hearing from John Sibley Williams, Shaindel Beers, and Cecelia Hagen. Don’t miss this poetry reading on this of all months! (We host 3 local poets on the last Thursday of every month.)
“The Careless Embrace of the Boneshaker” is a fearless and dynamic collection of contemporary poetry and short fiction by established and emerging writers. Contributors include Sue Hyon Bae, Shira Dentz, Janet Hamill, Mary Mackey, Puma Perl, John Sibley Williams, and Anton Yakovlev. The anthology also contains an interview with musician Thurston Moore. These writers are the boneshakers. Let their impact rattle, rise, and wrap itself around you.
Tonight we’ll be joined by Dan Raphael, Dawn Montefusco, John Sibley Williams, Mary Mackey, Natasha Kochicheril Moni,Richard Loranger, and Jane Ormerod. This is the last stop on the tour, so don’t miss it!
For this special event we’re combining poetry and music. Clark County Poet Laureate Christopher Luna will be accompanied by musicians Jason Levis (drums) and Lisa Mezzacappa (acoustic bass), known together as duo B. Duo B has been playing and improvising together for 10 years, and Christopher Luna is in his second tenure as Poet Laureate. This is a not-to-be missed special evening of music and poetry! ($7 suggested donation at the door.)
We’re taking a break from our poetry series this month. We’re back in August, with coastal poetry!
