UPCOMING ON SNOWFLAKES IN A BLIZZARD, FEB. 5-11
“LISTEN,” BY FRANCESCA VARELA.
Listen tells the story of May, a piano-genius college freshman who dreams of becoming a brilliant composer. In her school’s practice rooms, she meets Conner, an undeniably unattractive junior, and she is immediately captivated by his raw musicality on the piano. As May tries to navigate college life and fulfill her music dreams, Conner pulls her toward the natural world, toward her own wildness, and, ultimately, toward the wildness within her music as well.
“ECHOLOCATION,” BY KRISTIN BERGER
From both the visible and invisible margins of life, from the Oregon forest to high desert, from lake to river, the poems of Echolocation, by Kristin Berger, seek to reconcile memory and loss with a world still very much alive and beating. In a time of diminishing truth and light, this book locates beauty and holds space for its returning.
Adds the poet: “With this book, I hoped to be honest, use language in new ways, stretch myself poetically and also enlarge my heart. To be present with pain and beauty. To witness what’s possible through poetry, and underneath it.”
