Pages Bookshop says
Talking Turns is a reader series to be held on 2nd Tuesdays at the fabulous Pages Bookshop. Sponsored by John Lamb & Springfed Arts, it will be hosted by Mindy LePere & Joy Gaines-Friedler. Please join us Tuesday, November 10 , 2015, at 7:00 p.m. for our next event. This month will feature Linda K Sienkiewicz (prose) and Nandi Comer (poet.)

Talking Turns: How do our musings turn the corner into our writing? We want to offer a chance for prose and poetry to take turns and for the audience to be involved. Featured authors will share their work, as well as a poem or paragraph from another writer who has influenced them. We want to turn the reading into conversation - sort of ruminate around a campfire, the only glow coming from the warmth of Susan Murphy’s bookstore and a plastic glass of reasonable wine.

Linda K Sienkiewicz, author of In the Context of Love, attributes her creative drive to her artistic mother, who taught her to sew, and her father, who let her monkey around with the gadgets in his workshop. She is published in fiction and poetry, has a poetry chapbook award, a Pushcart Prize nomination and an MFA in Fiction.

Nandi Comer was raised in Detroit, Michigan. She received a B.A. in English and in Spanish with an emphasis on Latin American Culture from the University of Michigan. She has received fellowships from Cave Canem, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Vermont Studio Center, and Callaloo. Her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Another and Another: An Anthology From the Grind Daily Writing Series (Bull City Press, 2012), Cave Canem Anthology XII (Willow Books 2012), Callaloo, The Journal of Pan African Studies, The New Sound Sycamore Review and Third Coast. She is also pursuing an MA in the Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies.
