Join us for a reading with Diane Jarvenpa and Jon Krumberger, who will be sharing their latest books.

About Jarvenpa's swift, bright, drift:

swift, bright, drift is about the legacy of our wilderness, how we walk within it and around it and are still mystified by it. It is about being in the woods, observing, listening and sitting inside its luminous silence. There is a legacy here of a father to his daughter, how he taught her the sacred aspects of the forest and its waters and how she wishes to pass this down to her daughter. There’s a phenology here as well, that is the humble desire to record the changes of the earth, how we can feel illiterate in the face of nature and yet grateful for its adaptability, delicacy, rebirth, and the chance to learn.

Diane Jarvenpa is the author of Divining the Landscape; Ancient Wonders; the Modern World; and The Tender Wild Things, which received the Midwest Independent Publishers Association book award in poetry. She has received artist initiative and fellowship grants in writing from the Minnesota State Arts Board. She is a singer-songwriter who records under the name Diane Jarvi.

About Krumberger’s Because Autumn:

"John Krumberger’s Midwest is an everywhere that is once a place where 'Irony has not been discovered, and beauty is a house that can be lived in.' These poems are painterly and read like ritual acts of immersion in light and the currents of a life. I call your attention especially to the gorgeous last section, 'The Great Secret' which leaves me, as good poems do, in attentive silence." -- Bruce Smith

John Krumberger has previously published a volume of poems entitled The Language of Rain and Wind, and a chapbook, In a Jar Somewhere, through Black Dirt Press in 1999. His latest volume collection Because Autumn was published by Main Street Rag Press in 2016. He works as a psychologist in private practice in St. Paul MN and lives with his wife in Minneapolis.

This event is free and open to the public.
