MARCH 4TH – TWIG BOOKSHOP READING – SAINT JULIAN PRESS
Trinity Episcopal Church Midtown Houston | Morrow Chapel | Lighthouse Glass | Kim Clark Renteria | Houston, Texas
The Morrow Chapel at Trinity Episcopal Church in Midtown Houston has been the venue for Saint Julian Press quarterly events since it's inception.
PRAISE for THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT BEING AN EPISCOPALIAN
PRAISE for HUNGER FOR SALT
Melissa Studdard's high-flying, bold poetic language expresses an erotic appetite for the world: "this desire to butter and eat the stars," as she says, in words characteristically large yet domestic, ambitious yet chuckling at their own nerve.
In a haunting and, ultimately, stunning, sequence of poems in varied lyrical forms, Wendy Barker's Gloss develops a narrative that poses questions about her mother's unusual, seemingly privileged, British background. The poems of this gripping book are punctuated by short syllabic meditations on a Chinese scroll picturing a lone man paddling up a long river toward mountains.
The poetry of a feminist woman of faith, The Long Grass counters the losses endemic to our broken lives--beset by climate change, childhood abuse, gender stereotype and inequity, death itself--with the reassuring persistence of the natural world and the enduring promise of human love.
Horizon of the Dog Woman powerfully explores the strength of people, especially women, who struggle to find acceptance--in their bodies, in histories, in relationships, or in Indigeneity. These poems invoke the anxieties of outsiders, of those forced to reside in the liminal spaces of our society.
Praise for Aliki Barnstone
“The vividness and beauty of the language emerge in a fresh way . . . with evocative simplicity.” —Robert Alter, professor emeritus of Hebrew and comparative literature, University of California, Berkeley
Poetry. Art. Improvising on the tropes of classic pulp fiction, including genres like crime noir, horror, sci-fi, superhero, espionage, and vigilante, Tony Barnstone's audacious new poems are counterpointed by the mischievous (and blood-splattered) ink drawings of Iranian artist Amin Mansouri.
