Suzanne Sigafoos, This Swarm of Light
We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting Portland poet Suzanne Sigafoos in an online event on Wednesday, October 28th, at 4 pm pacific time. She will be reading from her newly published first full-length collection of poems, This Swarm of Light. A mid-century child of the midwest, Sigafoos is a happy Portland resident. She and her husband live in a 1916 house they restored in 1999, where they now shelter-in-place, grateful for a home among graceful trees and gracious neighbors. Her chapbook, Held in the Weave, was published in 2011 by Finishing Line Press.
John Brehm says this about the collection: "Whether they're about hiking down canyons, standing transfixed before an Andrew Wyeth painting, or bathing a dying mother, these poems are devotional. They remind us of one of poetry's most ancient and necessary impulses: to honor, to exalt, to give thanks. This Swam of Light is a luminous book." And Andrea Hollander describes the book as "a finely wrought collection of poems that are, in a word, stunning."
This reading will be offered over Zoom. The event is free to attend, but you must register in advance using the link below.
We look forward to "seeing" you all soon!
