Jan 25th – Feature readers Maria Mazziotti Gillan & Laura Boss

Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike

 Tuesday December 28th  7PM – 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
