Angle of Reflection, Poetry Anthology, reading moderated by Jeanette Clough

This anthology covers tremendous territory: nature, ecology, politics, identity, the philosophical relationship to place and landscape, and at the most impeccably timed moments, an appropriate whimsy and levity. A unique amalgamation of poets, this is a thoughtful intervention in an ongoing aesthetic heritage yet one that looks forward to new possibilities.

--Chris Abani, author of Sanctificum and Hands Washing Water
