Join Cindy Veach and Jennifer Martelli for an evening of poetry at the Gloucester Writer’s Center, Wednesday, February 6th, from 7:30-9:00!
(From the event page):
Cindy will be reading from her debut poetry collection, Gloved Against Blood. She will also read a selection of new poems.
Gloved Against Blood explores the relationships of four generations of women against a backdrop of the patriarchal textile mills of 19th century Lowell, Massachusetts that were fueled by the blood and sweat of exploited mill girls and enslaved African-Americans in the south. This collection speaks to family, lost love, infidelities, abandonment and the close work, women’s work of mending what is torn and making it like new despite the forces of inherited histories.
