Virtual Event: A Poetry Reading with Ellen Bass and Tess Taylor

May 18, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

A virtual reading with Ellen Bass and Tess Taylor, hosted by Brookline Booksmith, who says “Grab a drink and get ready for some poems. Settle in for some breath music. Join Ellen Bass and Tess Taylor to celebrate their new collections. Tess’s book Rift Zone offers poems for an apocalyptic California– the precarious places, the fault lines in whose midst we (all over America) already live. Her poems are also replete with valley girls, strip malls, ancient trees, new primates, upthrust soils. Ellen’s new book Indigo plumbs the miraculous from the stuff of life–the grit of oysters, taking an old dog out to pee in the night, shopping at Ross. Both of them will read new poems, and talk about how poetry lets us share breath in a way that is safe–and reminds us that our lives are fundamentally linked.”
