Kim Roberts to Read on 3/15

I’m distressed that I have to miss this poetry reading by the amazing Kim Roberts. It’s sponsored by Poetry Mutual, a Washington based poetry incubator that sponsors events, builds community among writers and audiences, and publishes books. Find out more at the website.

Kim Roberts Reads at Riverby Books from her New Book
The 2009 Pearl Poetry Prize Winner will be reading from her new book of poetry, Animal Magnetism.

"In Animal Magnetism, Kim Roberts investigates, in language as rich, complex, and nuanced as the body itself, the unlit interiors of physical and emotional anatomy…While these poems are beautifully-made and sometimes funny or painful, they are also brimming with information…Here the narrator functions as a trained docent, leading the reader on a private tour of the wonders and curiosities that document the early explorations of medicine and anatomy, in which the inner workings of the human body were first opened to the human eye." —Debra Marquart
