North Carolina Poetry Society Reading

What are women of a certain age writing about? The question bears asking because the answers may surprise: eco-feminist themes, absence and abandonment, the depths of the psyche and the depths of place, the end of life and life's beginning. More answers will come when Katherine Soniat reads from her recent debut collection, Bright Stranger, along with Sandra Ann Winters and Kathryn Kirkpatrick. Colleagues insofar as they hold or have held positions at North Carolina universities and share a poetic vocation, these writers' works are distinguished by the different voices, experiences, and power that each gives to words. From Soniat's lyrical arcs between intimate locales and philosophical, historical landscapes to Winters's reflections on the personal and the communal in rural Ireland and on through Kirkpatrick's straightforward narratives, which chase deep wonderings with natural and feminist language, there will be answers at this reading—but probably, delightfully, also more questions to ask. —Kendra Langdon Juskus
