Martha Collins and Peter Neil Carroll | Poetry Flash Readings | East Bay
Poetry Flash presents Martha Collins and Peter Neil Carroll, two poets who in their separate ways, will be exploring American history, geography, and politics.
Martha Collins‘s new book of poems is White Papers. Afaa Michael Weaver says, “White Papers is a praise song for the truth. It bravely pulls back the covers of whiteness to offer us precious views of racial privilege.
Peter Neil Carroll‘s new book of poems is A Child Turns Back to Wave: Poetry of Lost Places, winner of Prize Americana. Charlotte Muse says of it, “Peter Neil Carroll, poet and historian, has gone to see America for himself. He has traveled through desolate, mysterious western places full of the spirit of vanished peoples, and gone watching, remembering, and imagining through the heartland and the South, to bring us back…a clear-eyed, passionate record of the tragic destruction of the land, the remnants of its beauty, the stunned responses of its forgotten inhabitants.”
