Cancelled due to Blizzard Dec 28th – Feature readers Maria Mazziotti Gillan & Laura Boss
Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike
Tuesday December 28th th PM – 9PM
Feature Writers: Maria Mazziotti Gillan & Laura Boss
In What We Pass On–Collected and New Poems: Maria Mazziotti Gillan weaves a tapestry of woman’s life–wife,mother, grandmother, grandaughter, Italian American. Gillan peels away all self-protective layers and with increasing clarity invites us in.
Laura Boss’ newest book Flashlight ( Guernica) encompasses and expands on her themes of love and loss and one woman ‘s struggle to survive the injustice that often pervades both. Her literary weapons are irony,candidness, and a vulnerable fierceness
