Kathleen Weaver in Berkeley – 11-5-2015

 

Poetry Flash presents


Jane Downs and Kathleen Weaver, Thursday, November 5th 7:30pm, at Moe’s Books in Berkeley

Kathleen Weaver’s debut book of poems, Too Much Happens, will launch at this event. For more information please check Moe’s Books Events.

The poems in this book move simultaneously toward clarity and compassion, traveling through geological time to achieve a perspective in which the contemporary world’s cruelties and depredations can be faced, free of rhetoric and posturing, with an ascetic, often witty justice.

—Alissa Valles
