Therese Sellers Reading
Dark as a Hazel Eye
A selection of contributing poets will read from the anthology Dark As a Hazel Eye: Coffee & Chocolate Poems by Ragged Sky Press, an all woman-run small press based in Princeton, New Jersey.
Chocolate and coffee: two items of consumption, sources of pleasure and objects of tradition and ritual. Subject to transmutation, coffee and chocolate begin as beans and end in cream, foam, fume…poems in flavors that range from bitter to sweet.
Dark as a Hazel Eye brings together poems by established and emerging poets including Catherine Barnett, Elaine Equi, Amy Lemmon, Michael Palmer, Kiki Petrosino, James Richardson, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Virgil Suarez. Readings for the anthology have previously been held at the Princeton Public Library, and at New York’s Mulberry Street Library, a former chocolate factory.
Enjoy a great show and help the Grolier Poetry Bookshop too!
