Kathryn Neurnberger and Paisley Rekdal - Shared screen with speaker view
Omg I. Love this song
To echo Kate, welcome all! We’re very happy to celebrate the release of Kathryn Nuernberger’s THE WITCH OF EYE and Paisley Rekdal’s APPROPRIATE, both out this very week!
Order The Witch of Eye from our local bookstore, Antigone, or directly from Sarabande Books: http://www.sarabandebooks.org/titles-20192039/the-witch-of-eye-kathryn-nuernberger
great intro Alison!
That was a beautiful introduction, Alison Deming!
“Defiance, resistance, wit, and subterfuge.” Yes!
I don’t remember if Kate mentioned this or not, but because we have two readers with us tonight we’ll focus on their readings, and we won’t have a Q&A after. MFAs we’ll see you in colloquium tomorrow for conversation. Everyone else will have to resort to tweeting at our readers tonight.
“Also he was an idiot."
And please feel free to submit greetings and to amplify moments in the reading you enjoy here in the chat.
“….many of us start out meek…”
“They are the first to tell you many of us start out meek, as beautiful virtuous apologies of ourselves until, if we let them, the passing years make some more meaningful purpose of our lives. “ <3
“They are the first to tell you many of us start out meek, as beautiful virtuous apologies of ourselves until, if we let them, the passing years make some more meaningful purpose of our lives.”

Wrote that one down
Lyricism and research, that's the way to go.
