Join poet Nancy Richardson for a reading from her new book, An EveryDay Thing. She will be joined by local poet Joyce Thomas.
ABOUT AN EVERYDAY THING AND NANCY RICHARDSON:
Nancy Richardson's poems concern the coming of age in the rust-belt of Ohio during a period of decay of the physical and political structures that made the region once solid and predictable. Her poems chart the shifting of the foundations upon which a life is built and the undpredictability of events that have had personal and political consequences, including the shootings at Kent State. These poems have resonance to the chaotic political and social circumstances in which we now find ourselves.
