Poetry Reading: Fleda Brown, The Woods Are on Fire and Keith Taylor, The Bird-While
WHEN: Saturday, May 20, 2:00 to 4:00 pm
WHERE: Horizon Books, Traverse City, Michigan
The Woods Are on Fire is Fleda Brown’s deeply human and intensely felt poetic explorations of her life and world. She includes accounts of her brain-damaged brother, a rickety family cottage, a puzzling and sometimes frightening father, a timid mother, and the adult life that follows with its loves, divorces, and serious illnesses.
The Bird-While is a collection of forty-nine poems that meditate on the nature – both human and non-human – that surrounds us daily. Keith Taylor’s collection evokes certain Eastern meditative poets who often wrote in an aphoristic style of the spirit or the mind mirroring specific aspects of the natural world.
