Kathryn Smith Poetry Reading

 
Date:
Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017
 
Time:
7:00 p.m.
 
Description:
In language poet Laurie Lamon calls “both spare and sumptuous,” Book of Exodus narrates the imagined experiences of a Russian family who lived for 40 years in the Siberian taiga, utterly isolated from society. Smith’s debut collection examines wilderness, loneliness, and faith in poems that author Nance Van Winckel says “allow entry, or re-entry, to primal selves, we who once roamed a forest, ate of its bounty, and fought its beasts. And yes, in the best sense, the book also seems—as a marvelous abecedarian poem’s title proclaims—a ‘Rehearsal for the Apocalypse.’”
Kathryn Smith’s poems have appeared or are forthcoming in such publications as Mid-American Review, Poetry Northwest, the Laurel Review, Rock & Sling, The Cresset, and Redivider. A graduate of Whitworth’s English department (’01), Smith received her MFA in creative writing from Eastern Washington University, and her work has been recognized with a grant from the Spokane Arts Fund.
