Jodie Hollander and Michael Henry -- "My Dark Horses" and "Active Gods"

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."
