We are thrilled to be hosting a digital poetry reading with American poet Jodie Hollander on Wednesday 24th May at 7pm.
Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Jodie was raised in a family of classical musicians. She studied poetry in England and her debut full-length collection, My Dark Horses, was published with Liverpool University Press (Pavilion Poetry) in 2017. Her second collection, Nocturne, has recently launched with Liverpool & Oxford University Press.
Set in a technicolour world of dreams, ghosts, classical music, and Key West storms, Jodie’s compelling second collection charts the emotional journey of the daughter of a professional classical pianist. These bold and arresting poems, rich with musicality, and fierce in their emotional honesty, chart the complicated repercussions of family dysfunction and musical obsession while traversing the landscape of the human condition and exploring the need for refuge in the natural world.
To hear Jodie read from the new collection, join us on Zoom on Wednesday 24th May at 7pm. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions as part of a Q&A.
