Tess Gallagher – Is, Is Not: Poems author event
Port Angeles native, and poet to the world, Tess Gallagher reads from her new collection. Is, Is Not upends our notions of linear time, evokes the spirit and sanctity of place, and journeys toward discovering the full capacity of language. Gallagher's poems reverberate with the inward clarity of a bell struck on a mountaintop and hover daringly at the threshold of what language can nearly deliver while offering alternative corollaries as gifts of its failures. Guided by humor, grace, and a deep inquiry into the natural world, every poem nudges us towards moments of awe. How else except by delight and velocity would we discover the miracle within the ordinary.
Tess Gallagher has published eleven works of poetry, three collections of short fiction, two essay collections, and several other works. Her honors include a Guggenheim Fellowship and two National Endowment for the Arts Awards.
Is, Is Not will be released on May 7th and we are honored to co-sponsor this event with the Foothills Writers Series of Peninsula College. This will be only the second public reading from the new work, after the inaugural event on Thursday May 9th at 12:35 at Peninsula College.
Is, Is Not is published by Graywolf Press.
