MARGARET ROZGA- VIRTUAL AUTHOR EVENT
Virtual Poetry Reading
Saturday, September 18
Registration required (it's free!)
Join Books & Company and the Southeast Wisconsin Festival of Books for an evening with poet Margaret Rozga to celebrate her fifth book, Holding My Selves Together: New & Selected Poems. This event will feature the new work in this volume, including poems that see Alice in Wonderland as a coming-of-age story and imagine new Alice adventures. Bring your favorite Alice memories and let’s match them up with what Rozga envisions. New poems also grapple with issues of recent political turmoil and pandemic-induced uncertainty. They seek and sometimes find the words, the moments of calm, needed to hold oneself together.
