Lucille Lang Day & Kathleen Hastings | Poetry Flash Readings | East Bay
Poetry Flash presents a reading and book launch by Lucille Lang Day, Married at Fourteen, a memoir, and Kathleen Hastings, Cloud Fire, poems.
Lucille Lang Day will be reading from her memoir Married at Fourteen: A True Story. Herbert Gold says of it, “Lucy Day’s story of her life as a teenage mother and beyond is one of the great American contemporary memoirs.” She is the winner of the Willow Review Award in Creative Nonfiction and a Notable Essay citation in Best American Essays.
Katherine Hastings‘s first full-length book of poems is Cloud Fire. Gillian Conoley says, “How refreshing to come across a book like Katherine Hastings’ marvelous Cloud Fire, rich and verdant in formal experiment and range. Mixing lyrics, narratives, curses, blessings, spells, and unabashed love poems, the work is hard-won and honest, generous and rigorous.”
