Elizabeth Powell

Concerning the Holy Ghost's Interpretation of J. Crew Catalogues
Event date: 
Thursday, April 4, 2019 - 7:00pm

Join Elizabeth Powell for a reading from her new book, Concerning the Holy Ghost's Interpretation of J. Crew Catalogues.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  This visionary and innovative novel explores the intersections of representation, desire, prophecy, evangelism, and American consumerism, as it tracks the narrative contained in each photo spread of a J. Crew catalogue. The chorus of voices, the models, the photographer, the copywriter, as well its main consumer/observer--a US Senator's wife who is obsessed with breeding and bringing a golden calf from an American farm to Israel to bring on the apocalyptic end times--tell the tale of a world beginning to spin on a different axis.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Elizabeth A.I. Powell is the author of The Republic of Self a New Issues First Book in Poetry Prize winner. Her second book of poems, Willy Loman's Reckless Daughter: Living Truthfully Under Imaginary Circumstances was a 2016 "Books We Love" in The New Yorker, a Small Press Best Seller, and won the 2015 Anhinga Robert Dana Prize.
