April is National Poetry Month, and local indie bookstore Queen Anne Book Company is hosting Martha Silano, winner of the Saturnalia Books Poetry Prize, this Tuesday, April 8th at 7pm for a poetry reading.
The author of three previous collections of poetry – including the 2010 Saturnalia Books Poetry Prize winner, The Little Office of the Immaculate Conception – Silano will be reading from her new book of poetry, Reckless Lovely.
The new collection begins with The Big Bang and ends with twelve million bees released from a jack-knifed semi truck. The poetic travels in between include Renaissance masterworks, amusement parks, the peregrine, the paramecium, and more.
If you can’t make Tuesday’s reading, you can contact Queen Anne Book Company for a signed copy via phone at 206-284-2427 or their web site.
