Elizabeth Oakes and Lois Eby and Readers and Writers on Woman-Stirred Radio   Leave a comment

Tomorrow, Thursday, March 31st, at 4:15, I welcome back poet Elizabeth Oakes to Woman-Stirred Radio to explore her new poetry collection, Mercy in the New World (Wind Publications, 2011). Her earlier collection, The Luminescence of All Things Emily, received wonderful reviews across the board, and Mercy in the New World lives up to her craft, insight, and imagery. Readers will not be disappointed!
The title plays well in its multiple meanings and references to her time and society.

Mercy in the New World, is a powerful narrative drawing on the life of Anne Bradstreet’s sister and the years following her arrival on the shores of the New World. The poems are contained and visual, yet evoke true emotion and powerful images of Mercy’s life.

So please tune in at 4:15 for a wonderful discussion  of this wonderful book! Air studio phone is 802.454.7762 and we’d love to hear from you!

Then at 4:45, we’ll have a phone call from  Crystal Zevon, (yup, as in Warren) and she’ll brief us on the new local Readers and Writers organization. The opening is at LACE in Barre and the line up for tomorrow’s readings is fabulous!
Readers and Writers is a new writers community space and rare book bookstore housed at LACE in Barre, VT and just a step away from SPA (Studio Place Arts) offering all of us another venue for Vermont’s stellar arts and letters community. The grand opening begins at 3:30 and wraps up with readings by local poets, including Christina Cook (NH poet laureate),  Ann Cardinal, Spencer Smith, your truly, and others.

Finally, I welcome artist extraordinaire Lois Eby, who will be live in the studio. Lois will talk about her Vermont Arts Council‘s Spotlight Gallery exhibit, which runs until April 27, 2011. Click HERE to view some of Lois Eby’s images. A busy show that I hope all will enjoy.  Want to join the conversation? Give us a call at 802.454.7762.
