POETRIO

This month we will have Amie Whittemore, Rochelle Hurt & Matthew Olzmann.  

Amie Whittemore (Glass Harvest), focuses on our intimate connection to the natural world and how it shapes us. The book explores the struggle of relationships changing (or ending) and how we come to understand and accept our past. Anyone prone to nostalgia and anyone who celebrates the smallest aspects of our everyday world will love Whittemore's work."

Rochelle Hurt (In Which I Play the Runnaway), winner of the Barrow Street Press Poetry Prize. "'I was born with a gift for gall and grit, ' Rochelle Hurt writes a line that echoes through every poem in this collection. She spares nothing and bares all that needs baring about family, place, and relationships how they reflect each other, blurred in tarnished mirrors. With a Sylvia Plath like abandon and urgency, every single word feels completely necessary; words spoken with a vigor and honesty that are felt in the gut; words that remain lodged in the back of the throat." Richard Blanco"

Matthew Olzmann (Contradictions in the Design) Fighting illogic with illogic, poems employ humor as a way to make effecting points about American society and cultural norms.
