The Browsers Modern Poetry Book Club is led by Elise Dressler and meets monthly on Tuesday nights. We would like to extend an invitation to all of our poetry loving customers (RSVP is not necessary). The books are available in store at 15% off if you plan to attend the book club.
Every meeting explores a different poet through reading and discussion. This Fall, the group will explore poets published by Wave Books, an independent poetry press based in Seattle.
October's selection is While Standing in Line for Death by Caconrad: After his boyfriend Earth's murder, CAConrad was looking for a (Soma)tic poetry ritual to overcome his depression. This new book of eighteen rituals and their resulting poems contains that success, along with other political actions and exercises that testify to poetry's ability to reconnect us and help put an end to our alienation from the planet.
If you have any questions about the event, please email Elise.
