Tombolo Books in partnership with St. Petersburg Poet Laureate, Gloria Muñoz is thrilled to welcome Anne Barngrover to the bookstore for the first reading in our 2023 monthly poetry series!
Barngrover will read from her stunning new poetry collection, EVERWHEN, an anxious, verdant poetry collection that is preoccupied with a chthonic era—when the secrets of long ago catch up to now, and when the past, present, and future collapse into what's long been identified by indigenous cultures and early naturalists as Uncreation or Deep Time.
Driven by the voice of the betrayed Roman goddess Ceres, these poems consider what it is like to live out of time, to suffer unnamed illnesses of the female body, to love and grieve at the end of the world, and to even find hope and joy in “the way an apocalypse can mean/ to reveal."
Barngrover will be joined by fellow local poet Heather Sellers who will read works from some of her latest collections and be in conversation with Barngrover after the reading.
AND we will also be joined by our friends at Small Things Flower Co. for a popup flower shop during the event!
Let us know we will see you there! PLEASE RSVP online!
