Kim Stafford and Alice Derry Poetry Reading

Annie Bloom's is delighted to welcome back Portland author Kim Stafford and Port Angeles poet Alice Derry.

Kim Stafford will read selections from his recently published series of chapbooks. Alice Derry will read from her new poetry collection, Hunger.

"Alice Derry's Hunger is so beautiful, so dense with layers of meaning and the weight of the unspoken, so rich in its language and rhythm, that the book as a whole just frankly left me breathless. These are poems of enraged tenderness, of estrangement, of questioning and seeking, poems of family and childhood, poems of loss and yearning and sustenance. I could hear in them, see in them, voices and shadows from my own life. I know I will be returning to this book again and again, peeling back the layers." --Molly Gloss, poet and award-winning author of The Jump-Off Creek
