September 26, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Exciting news! Avalonia’s own Margaret Gibson has published another important book of poetry and will be presenting poems from it on Sunday, Sept 26 at 4:00pm at the Arts Mystic Cafe in Mystic. Margaret’s poetry is nationally-recognized and she is Connecticut’s current Poet Laureate. Tickets for the reading are $15 for regular admission and $5 for students. Don’t miss this wonderful event!
With The Glass Globe, celebrated poet Margaret Gibson completes a trilogy distinguished by its meditative focus on the author’s experience of her late husband’s Alzheimer’s disease. In this new collection, she blends elegies of personal bereavement with elegies for the earth during the ongoing global crisis wrought by climate change. Gibson’s poems personalize the vastness of climate catastrophe while simultaneously enlarging personal grief beyond the limits of self-absorption. A work of great compassion and vision, The Glass Globe is a necessary, heartbreaking book from one of our most compelling poets. To order your copy, please call LSU Press at (800-848-6224).
