Come delve into a new collection of poetry by Pushcart Prize-nominated poet Mary Moore Easter. The Body of the World was a finalist for the 2017 Prairie Schooner Book Prize.

Poet Angela Jackson says Easter’s new book “leads us through the tangled past and bristling present of race, slavery, gender, and cruelty, through China, France, and America. Easter offers beauty, breathe, and hope. She will leave you wiser––O, so much wiser.”

COST:  Free; please RSVP.
Includes discussion and reception. Books available for purchase.
