Join eight Oregon poets in celebration of Portland’s famed bridges and poetry for the launch of Motionless from the Iron Bridge: A Northwest Anthology of Bridge Poems.
When: Saturday, April 13, 2013 @ 7pm
Where: St. Johns Booksellers, 8622 N. Lombard St. Portland, OR 97203
David Cooke, A. Molotkov, Katharine Quince, Sam Roderick Roxas-Chua, Coleman Stevenson, Mark S.R. Struzan, Carrie-Ann Tkaczyk, and John Sibley Williams will be reading from this exciting new anthology, published by Portland’s own Bare bone books. There will be wine and hors d’oeuvres served.
Including both narrative and experimental poetry from 12 renowned and emerging authors from the Portland area, Motionless strives to capture the timelessness of its subject through an incredible diversity of poetic voices, many of whom are leading members of the Northwest’s thriving literary community. The stunning works of Oregon Poet Laureate Paulann Petersen and multi-award winning poet and Attic Institute founder David Biespiel weave between poems from up-and-coming names. Combining intimate portraits with conceptual questions, Motionless from the Iron Bridge clears a unique path from which readers can approach the many faces of the classic bridge metaphor.
