Carol Westberg and Sue Burton join Gibson's Bookstore virtually for a poetry reading!

Carol Westberg's Ice Lands: The lyric poems in Ice Lands journey through regions of knowing and not knowing, alive to our mortal connections in this precarious world. According to poet Mark Cox, these poems navigate “the liminal intersections of the natural and human worlds,” and Betsy Sholl describes Ice Lands as “a luminous and stunning book, blending grief with wisdom and awe.” This book, as Lisa Russ Spaar says, “reads like a breviary for navigating the second decade of the 21 st century. The poems move with an insomniacal attentiveness…and put…a spur to the truth that ‘we’re all so much more than we know.’”

Sue D Burton, winner of the 2017 Two Sylvia's Prize, is the author of Box. "Sue D. Burton’s Box is a brilliant, imperative, masterful collection. I envy this book; I covet and adore it. It is a book of the body and the soul, of the body as a trap for the soul, and the box—from the magician’s box, where the body is sawn in half, to the coffin—as a trap for the (female) body. It is a book of mirth and snark...." ~Diane Seuss
