An Evening of Poetry with Kim Addonizio and Cheryl Dumesnil



Tuesday, December 1, 7:30 p.m.

Kim Addonizio: Lucifer at the Starlite  BUY NOW

A lyrically intense fifth collection from "one of the nation's most provocative and edgy poets" (San Diego Union-Tribune). With both passion and precision, Lucifer at the Starlite explores life’s dual nature: good and evil, light and dark, suffering and moments of unexpected joy. Whether looking outward to events on the world stage—the war in Iraq, the 2004 Asian tsunami—or inward at struggles with the self, these poems aim at the heart and against the feeling that Lucifer may have already won the day.

Cheryl Dumesnil:  In Praise of Falling  BUY NOW

Winner of the 2008 Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize
Enacting the Zen proverb "fall down seven times, get up eight," this collection explores the ways we fall--through disillusionment, disappointment, and plain, old-fashioned mistakes, and the ways we rise up--out of personal debacles, unfortunate circumstances, family legacies, and collective struggles.
