Join us for a poetry reading! Jessica Baran, the art writer for the Riverfront Times, and Jennifer Kronovet are the co-creators of the fort gondo poetry series in St. Louis. Baran's poems in her new collection, Equivalents
, were described by Mary Jo Bang as "evidence of a mind that emits thought the way a quick-spinning, millisecond pulsar emits radio waves--with devastating precision… They are distinctive, inventive, intrepid, and discerning." Kronovet's collection, Awayward
, was described by National Book Award-winning poet Jean Valentine as "surprising and compelling and beautiful, so intelligent and felt."
