At this event, Sally Van Doren will read from her fourth book of poems, “Sibilance” (Louisiana State University Press, 2023).
Emma Wynn will read from their first full-length collection, “The World is Our Anchor” (FutureCycle Press, 2023).
Van Doren, a Cornwall-based poet and artist, explores the fertile cognitive territory between image and language. Her first book of poems received the 2007 Walt Whitman Award. A number of Van Doren’s poems are available online. Her artworks draw upon a personal iconography of calligraphic gestures, handprints, and letters. Van Doren’s exhibition at the Furnace Art on Paper Archive in Falls Village is on view through Saturday, April 15.
Emma Wynn received their M.T.S. from Harvard Divinity School and teaches Philosophy, Psychology, and LGBTQ+ U.S. History at the Hotchkiss School. They have been published in multiple magazines and journals and nominated for a Pushcart Prize twice. “The World is Our Anchor” is a collection of unsparing poems on the legacies of human brutality.
