Jodie Hollander, author of My Dark Horses, and Michael Henry, author of Active Gods, will speak about and sign their new books on Wednesday, October 4th at 7:30pm.
About My Dark Horses:
Set against the charms and vicissitudes of growing up in a family of musicians, Jodie Hollander's beautifully-structured and compelling debut, My Dark Horses, follows the story of a daughter's maturing relationship with her mother. Always alert to the surreal comedy of the human condition, these powerful and immediate poems chart with huge passion, musicality and insight a complex journey towards familial understanding and reconciliation.
About Active Gods:
In Active Gods, Michael J. Henry examines what it means to be both the parent and the son, and his poems reveal threads between these dual identities in small, specific moments: the shared experience of growing up, losing out, escaping, and then resolving to try again. With imagery that is both familiar and personal, Active Gods creates a world where memories bubble up to themselves known, however "crudely made."
