9th Ave: CAConrad and Dara Wier

Sunday, October 22, 2017 - 7:30pm

This event will be held at our 9th Ave. location.

 

 

 

CaConrad and Dara Wier read from their new poetry collections from Wave Books, While Standing in Line for Death and In the Still of the Night.

 

About While Standing in Line for Death

 

After his boyfriend Earth’s murder, CAConrad was looking for a (Soma)tic poetry ritual to overcome his depression. This new book of 18 rituals and their resulting poems contains that success, along with other political actions and exercises that testify to poetry’s ability to reconnect us and help put an end to our alienation from the planet.

 

About In the Still of the Night

 

“That’s how one human leaves us” ends the first poem of Dara Wier’s startling new collection, a surprisingly raw and fluid exploration of grief. Wier records her thoughts with clarity and immediacy, showing us the unraveling and reconstruction of her world and consciousness after a significant loss.
