Jon Thompson, Stephanie Rogers, & Kerri French

When: Mon., May 8, 7 p.m. 2017

"If every event touches every other event ... then nothing is inconsequential and history/ is both what we are and what we are becoming," Jon Thompson puts forth in "Writing History." A poetry professor at N.C. State who also edits its excellent online journal and press, Free Verse, Thompson has sought the linkages between place and person, landscape and lineage, and past and present in books including After Paradise, Landscape with Light, and, last year, Strange Country, which set its slanted but lucid sights on the prodigious, protean contradictions of America. In this reading at So & So Books, Thompson is joined by Stephanie Rogers, a New York-based UNC-G alum who has thrice been included in Samovar Press's Best New Poets anthologies and will read from her debut collection, Plucking the Stinger; and Kerri French, whose forthcoming book, Every Room in the Body, won the 2016 Moon City Poetry Award. —Brian Howe
