Carmichael's presents Pat Owen, Frank X Walker, and Katerina Stoykova on October 17th for a joint poetry reading.
"Pat Owen is that rare poet who witnesses the divine in actually-lived lives--in wrinkles and caf's, otters and baseball, vulvas and ferns. Here is a music as attentive and tender as the practitioner's Zazen-breath, and like the Zazen master, here is a tenderness that is hard, sharp, quick.
Second Skin by Katerina Stoykova discusses the horrors of growing up in domestic violence, and focuses on some of the long-term effects of such upbringings. This poetry collection features three main characters--a mother, a father and a child. The story of the family is told from the child's perspective.
