I'll be reading on Thursday, April 27, 7pm, at The Artisans, 2549 Irving St. (@27th Ave), San Francisco, along with six poets: Kathleen McClung (who put together the reading), Jodi Hottel, Teresa Poore, Susan Terris, Jeanne Wagner, and Susan Cohen. Here are directions.
"Women, Forgotten and Remembered" will mark the Bay Area launch for Forgotten Women: A Tribute in Poetry, edited by Ginny Lowe Connors, introduction by Marilyn Kallett (Grayson Books, 2017). I'll be reading my poem "Practicing Self-Reliance," about the largely voiceless women behind the New England Transcendentalists, and a prose poem/flash sequence about Freud's "Dora" (who suffered from hysterical aphonia, or loss of voice). Steve will read the sections from the Freud case study, as I verbalize Ida-Dora's reactions.
Here's the Facebook event page, Ida Bauer (who looks ready to take on Freud), and Kathleen with the book. Would love to see some friends there!
