Poetry Reading: Frances Payne Adler, Donna Prinzmetal, Willa Schneberg
Annie Bloom's Books, Tuesday, February 3 at 7pm
Portland poet Frances Payne Adler is the author of five books: two poetry collections, Making of a Matriot (Red Hen Press) and Raising the Tents (Calyx Books); and three collaborative poetry-photography books and exhibitions that have shown in galleries and state capitol buildings across the country, and in the U.S. Senate in Washington, D.C. Adler also co-edited Fire and Ink: An Anthology of Social Action Writing, (University of Arizona Press), which won the ForeWord Book of the Year Award for Anthologies. Adler's current work is Dare I Call You Cousin, about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a collaboration with Israeli artists.

Portland poet Donna Prinzmetal's Snow White, When No One Was Looking is a collection of persona poetry, re-visions the original fairy tale. The poems are written in a multiplicity of voices and from a variety of perspectives. The diction is often contemporary; some poems attempt to deal with Snow White in popular culture; some rely on a more literal interpretation of the Grimm's fairy tale. Still others explore multicultural variations on the story. The poems investigate the relationship between Snow White's inner and outer world as she reflects on her journey and tells us her secrets.

Portland poet Willa Schneberg's Rending the Garment is a series of linked poems designed to explore the life and times of one Jewish American family. It is a narrative more of emotional truths than of facts. The facts are: Schneberg's parents were born and raised in Brooklyn, and after the death of her father, Portland became her mother's home. Her father suffered from agoraphobia, and her mother survived larynx cancer. Afterward, unable to speak, her mother "spoke" through writing in notebooks that were always with her. Rending the Garment is a narrative tapestry encompassing persona poems, prose poems, flash fiction, imagined meetings with historical figures, ancestral appearances, and ephemera.

Ian Weir & Stacy Carlson: Historical Fiction Reading
Annie Bloom's Books, Wednesday, February 25 at 7pm
Ian Weir's Will Starling is set in London, 1816. The Napoleonic War is over, Romanticism is at its high tide, and the great city is charged with the thrill of scientific discovery and Regency abandon. The nineteen-year-old foundling Will Starling returns from the Continent, having spent five years assisting military surgeon Alec Comrie, and now is helping Comrie build a civilian practice in London's rough Cripplegate area. This means entering into an uneasy alliance with the Doomsday Men: grave robbers who supply surgeons with cadavers for dissection. There are wild rumors about Dionysus Atherton, an old university friend of Comrie's and the brightest of London's emerging surgical stars, whispers of experiments on corpses not quite dead, in a bid to unlock the mystery of death itself. Will works obsessively to ferret out the truth; the investigation twists and turns through brothels and charnel houses and the mansions of Mayfair.

Stacy Carlson's Among the wonderful is set in 1842. Phineas T. Barnum is a young man, freshly arrived in New York and still unknown to the world. With uncanny confidence and impeccable timing, he transforms a dusty natural history museum into a great ark for public imagination. In this kaleidoscopic setting, the stories of two compelling characters are brought to life. Emile Guillaudeu is the museum's grumpy taxidermist, who is horrified by the chaotic change Barnum brings to his beloved institution. Ana Swift is a professional giantess plagued by chronic pain and jaded by a world of gawkers. This novel weaves a world where upper Manhattan is still untrammeled wilderness, the Five Points is at the height of its bloody glory, and within the walls of Barnum's museum, ancient tribal feuds play out in the midst of an unlikely community of marvels.

Nicole Kear presents Now I See You
Annie Bloom's Books, Thursday, February 26 at 7pm
At nineteen years old, Nicole C. Kear's biggest concern is choosing a major--until she walks into a doctor’s office in midtown Manhattan and gets a life-changing diagnosis. She is going blind, courtesy of an eye disease called retinitis pigmentosa, and has only a decade or so before Lights Out. Instead of making preparations as the doctor suggests, Kear decides to carpe diem and make the most of the vision she has left. She joins circus school, tears through boyfriends, travels the world, and through all these hi-jinks, she keeps her vision loss a secret.

When Kear becomes a mother, just a few years shy of her vision’s expiration date, she amends her carpe diem strategy, giving up recklessness in order to relish every moment with her kids. Her secret, though, is harder to surrender - and as her vision deteriorates, harder to keep hidden. As her world grows blurred, one thing becomes clear: no matter how hard she fights, she won’t win the battle against blindness. But if she comes clean with her secret, and comes to terms with the loss, she can still win her happy ending.

Told with humor and irreverence, Now I See You is an uplifting story about refusing to cower at life’s curveballs, about the power of love to triumph over fear. But, at its core, it’s a story about acceptance: facing the truths that just won't go away, and facing yourself, broken parts and all. Facebook Google Reddit Twitter
