Nin Andrews

Join CavanKerry poet Nin Andrews as she moderates Our Wild, Luminous, and Lyrical Selves: Poetry

Rebecca Morgan Frank (Sometimes We’re All Living in a Foreign Country), January Gill O’Neil (Rewilding), and Leona Sevick (Lion Brothers) read from their new collections of poetry. Book sales and signing will follow. FREE to attend and open to the public.

Why should you attend?

“So much happens in these intensely lyrical poems, accompanied by such subtle music and profound, often witty, meditations on love, loneliness, rapture, and mortality. [Sometimes We’re All Living in a Foreign Country] is a beautiful book, one that asks us to see the everyday world anew, and discover in it marvelous strangeness.”—Kevin Prufer, author of How He Loved Them

Rewilding, by January Gill O'Neil

“Rewilding, a relatively new ecological term, means to return an area of land to its original state. Reveling in letting go of the damaged and broken parts of ourselves while celebrating renewal and new beginnings, O’Neil’s poetry examines the external worlds of race and culture and the internal, personal worlds of family and desire. Ultimately, these poems tap into what is wild and good in all of us.”

“Leona Sevick’s Lion Brothers is a psychologically astute, keen, and powerful sequence of poems that harness the luminous particulars of experience and race to reveal worlds within and behind the immediate, visible one.”—Arthur Sze, author of Compass Rose
