Left Bank Books

Andrea Scarpino and Josh MacIvor-AndersenLeft Bank Books presents poet Andrea Scarpino, who will read from her book-length poem, What the Willow Said as It Fell, and author Josh MacIvor-Andersen, who will discuss his memoir, On Heights & Hunger.

This event is free and open to the public, but purchase of either What the Willow Said as It Fell or On Heights & Hunger from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line. 

In her book-length poem What the Willow Said as It Fell, current Michigan UP Poet Laureate Andrea Scarpino bears witness to the body as a site of loss, to chronic pain as an all-encompassing experience, and to the mythological and medical ways we understand the body as it is continually created and lost.

On Heights & Hunger is a memoir of two professional and competitive tree-climbing brothers, both hungry for transcendence and adventure, coming to terms with their relationship to the divine, the family that first provided a framework for faith, and their own obsessions, victories, and failures.
