Join us for an evening of poetry & shadow images!

National Poetry Series winner GennaRose Nethercott will read from her narrative poem The Lumberjack’s Dove—animated by a 60 foot, panoramic shadow crankie by Vermont artist Wooly Mar. In Nethercott's otherworldly fable, a woodsman cuts off his own hand with an axe—only to watch it shapeshift into a dove. This striking image gives way to what Pulitzer-prize winner and former Poet Laureate Louise Glück calls, “a meditation on attachment, on loss, on transformation.”

Performance will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.
