Fixed Stars Book Launch
Join Burrow Press for the launch of Marisa Siegel’s poetry collection, Fixed Stars. In this collection, Siegel investigates the in-between: windows, porches, drawers, bedrooms, and basements are portals to examine how language shapes and is shaped, and to what ends. Siegel’s poems take readers on a lush voyage through trauma and toward the reestablishment of hope. Celebrate the release of Fixed Stars with readings by an all-star lineup of poets featuring Marisa Siegel, Kaveh Akbar, Taylor Byas, Victoria Chang, Cortney Lamar Charleston, Maggie Smith, and Molly Spencer. A brief Q&A to follow the readings.
Funding for this program is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with Burrow Press at Stetson University.
Date/time: April 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Presented By:Marisa Siegal, author; Kaveh Akbar, poet and founder of DiveDapper; Teresa Carmody, Program Director, MFA of the Americas, Stetson University;
