Join Eagle Harbor Books in welcoming Jed Myers and Tina Schumann on Thursday September 12th at 6:30 PM. Both poets will be reading selections from their recent works.
Jed Myers' Love's Test is the winner of the 2019 Grayson Books Chapbook Competition. Life's most fundamental questions are raised in this elegant short poetry collection by Jed Myers. In the end, the poems in Love's Test acknowledge our separateness, and our struggles to connect, but also affirm the power of our willingness to try and try again. A poet who writes with great tenderness, honesty, and grace, Myers has won many awards for his work.
Tina Schumann is the author of the poetry collections As If (Parlor City Press, 2010), which was awarded the Stephen Dunn Poetry Prize, and Requiem: A Patrimony of Fugues (Diode Editions, 2017), which won the 2016 Diode Editions chapbook competition. Her work was a finalist in the National Poetry Series, Four Way Books Intro Prize, and the New Issues Prize. She is the recipient of the 2009 American Poet Prize from The American Poetry Journal and a Pushcart nominee. She is the curator and editor of the anthology Two-Countries: U.S. Daughters and Sons of Immigrant Parents (Red Hen Press, 2017).
Event date: Thursday, September 12, 2019 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm
