LUNCH WITH BOOKS: Woman in Red Anorak with Marc Harshman

December 11, 2018

Event starts at 12:00 PM.

West Virginia Poet Laureate, Marc Harshman, returns to discuss his new prize-winning collection, in which actual war, age, and disaster mingle with dream and hallucinatory sadness to produce an edgy sweetness few American poets have managed to give us. The voices of the lost, and found, are strangely like our own, and the stories they tell, or imply, are familiar without ever seeming the least bit stale or contrived. For all the sadness in their subject matter, the poems are deeply humane, affectionate, restorative, and brilliantly told. Woman in Red Anorak is a unique treasure, and was the winner of the 20th Annual Blue Lynx Prize.
