Run the Gamut -- An Evening of Poetry
02/20/2014 7:30 pm
Join us for a special evening of readings and discussions with local poets Vicki Mandell-King, author of Tenacity of Lace, Ran Huntsberry, author of The Stranger Myself, and Karen Douglass, author of Red Goddess Poems on Thursday, February 20th at 7:30pm.
About the Books:
Vicki Mandell-King, author of Tenacity of Lace
In Tenacity of Lace, Vicki Mandell-King unravels knots and weaves threads into compelling patterns of holding on and letting go. While telling stories of relationships, soldiers, births and deaths, birds and stars, these poems depict connections formed and the empty spaces in between. By turns lyrical, then narrative, these poems are rich with images, dialogue and music, and if their endings surprise the reader, this is only because the endings have snuck up on the poet herself.
Ran Huntsberry, author of The Stranger Myself
“In The Stranger Myself, Huntsberry imagines his identity from experiences of his childhood as a stranger during and after World War II, and from experiences with strangers he has encountered around the world as an adult. …The wounds and worlds he has known invite delight and reflection, as his identity emerges poem by poem from his empathy with strangers of all ilks...then the intriguing others he has encountered wandering the globe ever since.” ~Constance Defotis
Karen Douglass author of Red Goddess Poems
In Karen Douglass’s new book of poetry, Red Goddess Poems, Celtic mythology meets family history in a series of imaginative poems. There's music and art. There's shape shifting, magic and pathos.
