Poetry Reading: Frances Payne Adler, Donna Prinzmetal, Willa Schneberg

02/03/2015 7:00 pm

Portland poet Frances Payne Adler is the author of five books: two poetry collections, Making of a Matriot (Red Hen Press) and Raising the Tents (Calyx Books); and three collaborative poetry-photography books and exhibitions that have shown in galleries and state capitol buildings across the country, and in the U.S. Senate in Washington, D.C. Adler also co-edited Fire and Ink: An Anthology of Social Action Writing, (University of Arizona Press), which won the ForeWord Book of the Year Award for Anthologies. Adler's current work is Dare I Call You Cousin, about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a collaboration with Israeli artists.

Portland poet Donna Prinzmetal's Snow White, When No One Was Looking is a collection of persona poetry, re-visions the original fairy tale. The poems are written in a multiplicity of voices and from a variety of perspectives. The diction is often contemporary; some poems attempt to deal with Snow White in popular culture; some rely on a more literal interpretation of the Grimm's fairy tale. Still others explore multicultural variations on the story. The poems investigate the relationship between Snow White's inner and outer world as she reflects on her journey and tells us her secrets.

Portland poet Willa Schneberg's Rending the Garment is a series of linked poems designed to explore the life and times of one Jewish American family. It is a narrative more of emotional truths than of facts. The facts are: Schneberg's parents were born and raised in Brooklyn, and after the death of her father, Portland became her mother's home. Her father suffered from agoraphobia, and her mother survived larynx cancer. Afterward, unable to speak, her mother "spoke" through writing in notebooks that were always with her. Rending the Garment is a narrative tapestry encompassing persona poems, prose poems, flash fiction, imagined meetings with historical figures, ancestral appearances, and ephemera.
