Left Bank Books
Join us for an evening with three local (or formerly local!) poets published by Parlor Press!
Jennifer Atkinson will read from Canticle of the Night Path, winner of the New Measure Poetry Prize. The poems in Canticle of the Night Path, collected in alphabetical order from “Canticle of A” to “Canticle of Zed,” are little songs of five—five lines, five sentences, five couplets, or five paragraphs—canticles to, for, with, and of all sorts of things.
Allison Funk will read from Wonder Rooms. Centuries before modern museums, European wonder rooms housed artifacts and curiosities that mirrored the worlds of their collectors. In them, the New World met Old. In Wonder Rooms, she is similarly in between: at once in the shelter of her childhood home and the chaos of a loved one’s mental illness.
Eric Pankey will read from Crow-Work. "What is a song but a snare to capture the moment?" Eric Pankey asks in his new collection, Crow-Work. This central question drives Pankey's ekphrastic exploration of the moment where emotion and energy flood a work of art.
