Join Books Inc. in Berkeley for an evening of poetry with Laura Walker, Sarah Rosenthal, and Micah Ballard, reading pieces from their respective new collections Story; Lizard; and Afterlives.
In Story, Walker shares the strategies of telling, which, as every savvy writer knows, is a constant tug between sharing and holding back, finding, losing, and recovering the threads of narration.
In Lizard, Rosenthal "explores the creaturely membranes that lie between the known-social and the unknown-social. This is bone instructive poetry. I love it." - Rodrigo Toscano
In Afterlives, Ballard continues the precarious yet successful envisioning of the spirited haunts of his native Louisiana amidst the streets of his long adopted San Francisco.
