Celebration of Poetry

Event Date: Friday, October 31 at 7:00pm

Join us for a Celebration of Poetry with 4 amazing poets.

Kate Gale, author of The Goldilocks Zone

“…These poems… prove repeatedly that Gale possesses a poetic tone and pace all her own.  She is also refreshingly out of step with today’s poetry of self-absorption, for she is fascinated less by her ego than by the strange variety of the world around us.” —Billy Collins, Former U.S. Poet Laureate

  • Cynthia Hogue, author of Revenance

By turns elegiac, ecopoetic, and impolitic, Hogue’s 8th collection is a condensery of empathic encounters with others and otherness.

  • Liza Porter, author of Red Stain

“With unflinching honesty…, Liza Porter peels back the human skin to reveal its darkest, most raw underside. And yet, her work leaves us with hope, and most important, with love.”—Naomi Benaron, author of Running the Rift

  • Peggy Shumaker, author of Toucan Nest: Poems of Costa Rica

In the 8th book by Alaska State Writer Laureate Peggy Shumaker, her encounter with Costa Rica has produced a work of startlingly beautiful mindfulness and imagination.

The reading at Op Cit was terrific.  They bought books! The store was packed.  We rocked it!
