Join poet, Melinda Mueller, and cellist, Lori Goldston, as we celebrate the publication of Mary’s Dust
, Melinda’s first full-length collection since her award-winning, “What the Ice Gets”.
Lori Goldston will perform a suite of new music commissioned for the book (and included in the digital download) and we will also be showing a film by Christian Anderson featuring Seattle poets discussing the unqiue perspectives women writers bring to writing about history and creating their own narratives.
“Melinda Mueller’s great gift is translating historical detail and scientific fact into profound human experience. Long-awaited Mary’s Dust is a tour de force, a klatch of history’s Marys speaking through a stunning array of formal constraints—much as they did in life. Each Mary emerges from Mueller’s precise and brilliant word choice and imagery to linger “with a faint ringing.” Mary’s Dust is an ambitious, awe-inspiring, marvelous collection.” — Kathleen Flenniken, author of Plume.
PLEASE NOTE: the reading will take place in the STREAM Building, with its enterance Spring street, between 12th and 13th.
