A Poetry Reading with Janine Certo and Kimberly Ann Priest
Register on eventbrite
Poetry. Women's Studies. Italian American Studies. Janine Certo is a poet of grief and joy who searches inward and outward to find the transcendent meaning of 'house and universe.' Hers is a rare achievement: a philosopher's intelligence at work in poems of the domestic and natural worlds.--Maria Terrone
Kimberly Ann Priest's debut full-length collection Slaughter the One Bird is a haunting and incisive meditation on the enduring effects of childhood sexual abuse. Reflecting on the impact of trauma on her memories and role as a mother, Priest intertwines past and present in a series of lyrical confessions and meditations on power and grief.
