Moonstone Poetry at Fergie’s Pub: Featuring Ona Gritz and Daniel Simpson

September 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Border Songs: A Conversation in Poems by Ona Gritz & Daniel Simpson ($14.99, August 2017)

The poems in Border Songs offer more than a conversation between poets: they’re conversant, knowledgeable, informed by eros, loss, delight, curiosity, and intimate wisdom. This collection stays long after you’ve stopped reading to meditate alone about body and soul. –Stephen Kuusisto

Ona Gritz’s first full length poetry collection, Geode, was a finalist for the 2013 Main Street Rag Poetry Book Award. “Ona Gritz’s poems prove the unlikely – that it’s possible to dazzle with simplicity, an eloquent, apparently effortless simplicity that poem after poem registers emotional truths. Many poems in Geode explore what it means to live gracefully with a disability. I love this book.” -Stephen Dunn

Daniel Simpson is a recipient of a Fellowship in Literature from the PCA, has published poems in “Prairie Schooner,” “The Cortland Review,” “Hampden-Sydney Poetry Review,” “Passager,” “Atlanta Review,” among other literary journals. Cinco Puntos Press, published his essay “Line Breaks the Way I See Them” and four of his poems in “Beauty Is A Verb: The New Poetry of Disability,” a 2012 ALA Notable Poetry Book called “unusual and powerful” by “Publisher’s Weekly” in a starred review. An open mic will follow the featured readers. The event is free and 21+. Dave Worrell Host
