presents a reading by two gifted poets.
Michigan poet Christine Rhein’s Wild Flight soars across extensive terrain.
From the working world of Detroit to American suburbia and pop culture, from
WWII to the war in Iraq, Rhein’s poems explore history, science and the social world with poignancy and humor. Christine Rhein, author of Wild Flight
Crow Song, the new collection by Chicago to Sacramento transplant Zoe
Keithly, draws upon life experiences, dividing itself into four subjects: Circling, From the Nest, Scavenging, and The Long Iridescent Flight.
…Gentle yet fiercely sculpted poems…Hers is not a well-known voice, but one that exudes experience as well as unapologetic passion.—C. Michael Curtis, Fiction Editor, The Atlantic Monthly
It’s the whole gamut… the sensuality, the mystery, and the sacredness of every day experience…These poems reach directly into the poetry of her readers’ lives.—Chicago poet Anne Schultz, The Unicorn and the Judge
Her poetic task is to redeem the family and the lost places of childhood, and, in this book’s final poems, to redefine spiritual longing as love. –Dennis Schmitz, former Sacramento Poet Laureate.
