About the Event

Jon Davis is a prize-winning poet and former Poet Laureate of the City of Santa Fe. About An Amiable Reception, Pam Houston, author of Deep Creek: Finding Hope in the High Country says, “This is the work of a great, and largely unsung American poet at his most relentless, at his most and least wise; it is a map to hold in our hands as we fly off the end of the world” 

In this astounding second collection, Breather, Ioanna Carlsen presents us with visions of breath, both ecstatic and mundane—at once spoken, quoted, and listened for—examining the air shared by all. It is breathing that connects us, the poet knows, and she crosses dimensional and existential bounds to prove this connection.
