When: Sat., April 6 2019
From 4 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 6, author Anne Poarch is having a poetry reading and book signing for her book, “Flight.” The event will take place at Valiant Tea Co. at 6913 Lakeside Ave. In this slim volume of free verse poetry, Poarch examines her own complex experience of joy, grief, loss and maturation through the vehicle of the four seasons and the motifs of butterflies, robins and other aspects of nature. This collection of 48 free verse poems invites the reader to reflect upon the intersection between the spiritual and physical and the complex love between a parent and child. Bridging an out-of-doors childhood and the death of her father when she was 11, to a motherhood in which she longs to share all of nature with her young sons, Poarch’s words will surprise you and inspire youu.
