Events and Happenings in April

In her poem “Spring,” Edna St. Vincent Millay asks,
“To what purpose, April, do you return again?”
We can certainly answer that.

RSVP on our Facebook page, and bring your friends to hear some delicious, lyrical, witty work. 

“Red Canyon Falling
on Churches”
by Juliana Aragó
n Fatula

Fatula uses a combination of nature, spirituality, myth, and ritual in this magical collection of poems. With no-holds-barred honesty, she shares her experiences of trying to escape the bonds of race and gender to prevail in an adjust world for a woman of color who writes. 

“The Year the Eggs Cracked”
by J Diego Frey

Like a blindfolded fool who stands on a street corner giving out free hugs, this poetry collection has many oddly shaped gifts to offer. Maybe you'll come away with a feeling of affection, maybe with some type of infection, but your relationship with modern poetry will be changed. We hope for the better. 
“Lost Songs &
Last Chances
by Chris Ransick

This collection from Denver's former poet laureate pulses with surprising turns and playful language. The
book's complex weave of individual, highly readable pieces collected into suites presents an invitation to
the reader to absorb the book as greater than the sum
of its parts. 
Kathryn Winograd is one of Foreword Reviews'
2014 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Award Finalists for her book “Phantom Canyon: Essays of Reclamation.”
