Carolyn Martin Book Launch Celebration

The Poetry Box is proud to announce the release of Carolyn Martin’s poetry collection, “The Way A Woman Knows.” We invite everyone to join in the celebration and hear Carolyn’s new book come to life – from her voice along with the voices of local poets and friends. Praise for Carolyn's New Book ... I love the intimacy, feistiness, smarts, and charm of Carolyn Martin's second collection of poetry. She is a poet deeply invested in everyday holiness, in “cobwebs sighing on a wall” and “glory pouring over earth.” In love with mysteries brought down to earth, Martin knows what contemporary oracles are for; her often visionary gaze lets us see “what's useful to know/when nothing's just itself.” She handles the most difficult subjects – death, gender identity, love, families, war, and belief – with great compassion and clarity. Kathleen Halme, Author of My Multiverse, Winner, 2014 Green Rose Prize ------------------------------------------- The Way a Woman Knows traverses the profane and the quotidian, as in “… slick with rabbit-splat the Kia/smeared in puddling rain …” and soars into the realm of the goddess and myth, revealed in the poem “Dancing with the Women in the Moon.” With a fresh eye, Carolyn Martin re-envisions old tales like Antigone and Ismene, David and Goliath. And in her masterful, heart-wrenching persona poem “What’s Left to Burn,” this former nun dares to tell the truth about family and loss. Willa Schneberg, Author of Rending the Garment, Recipient, 2002 Oregon Book Award in Poetry ------------------------------------------- Books will be available for sale at the event or can be ordered at: www.TheWayaWomanKnows.com Reading will take place in the Dining Room on Lower Level. Light refreshments.
