Little Patuxent Review Prose and Poetry Reading January 16
Leading writers and poets in the region will read from their newly published works in the Little Patuxent Review 2 p.m. Saturday January 16 at the Kittamaqundi Community, 5410 Leaftreader Way in Columbia.
Admission to the poetry/fiction reading event is free. At the event, the Little Patuxent Review will be releasing its newest edition with the theme “Form & Structure” at the cost of $10.
The literary/art publication features an interview with and poems by Donald Hall, the Library of Congress’ fourteenth Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry in 2006. In addition to six of his previously published poems during the course of his career, Mr. Hall submitted to the Little Patuxent Review a poem heretofore unpublished, which is unique prospect for a literary review.
The review also displays the artworks of woodworker David Fry and photographer/artist Joan Forester.
Susan Thornton Hobby conducted the published interview with Mr. Hall, and she will serve as emcee at the public reading by:
Rafael Alvarez, David Fry, Katherine Cottle, Barbara Westwood Diehl, Danuta Hinc, Christine Higgins, Danuta E. Kosk-Kosica, Lewis Levenberg, Natalie Lobe, Airin Miller, Lenett Partlow-Myrick, Madeleine Mysko, Ellen Orner and Truth Thomas.
The editor of the publication, Michael R. Clark, says of the review’s “Form and Structure” theme: “The stories and essays give structure to the chaos of a moment, a day, a lifetime. We tell ourselves stories to create some semblance of order in our disordered imaginations; we reflect on our experiences in an attempt to bear the effects of our choices and accidents.”
