Anna M. Warrock, From the Other Room

"Anna M. Warrock paints in subtle color the varying shades of loss, with white snows that 'fall dark against the sky,' red seeds, lilac wind, the silver quality of the moon and of glass.  A remarkable coolness pervades the poems, in content and sensitive attention to form—a calm necessary to the revelation of truth surrounding death within the confines of a family.

Rebecca Morgan Frank, Jennifer Militello & Kathleen Ossip

Join three poets for readings from their latest collections.

Magicians, wig makers, sculptors, perfumers, choreographers, and composers all help conjure the worlds of Frank's second collection, The Spokes of Venus. These poems offer a landscape shaped by the tensions between the act of making and the art of observing. If music and art are the sisters of poetry, this collection is a chorus a glorious one of siblings arguing and singing.
