Be Your Authentic Self: A Poetry Reading
Annette Langlois Grunseth & Bobbie Lee Lovell
Join us for a reading that honors the struggles and joys of living an authentic life. Two local poets will read from their new chapbooks, both published by Finishing Line Press. Annette Langlois Grunseth is the author of Becoming Trans-Parent: One Family's Journey of Gender Transition. These poems share the parental experience of an adult child transitioning from son to daughter. Narratives address issues including family life, clothing, medical care and social justice. Bobbie Lee Lovell’s book, Proposition at the Walk-In Infinity Chamber, is the product of a personal growth and healing process. These poems are about relationships, decision-making and resilience. Pivotal moments from dating to divorce are infused with ekphrastic (visual art) and speculative (sci-fi/fantasy) elements. The event is free, and everyone is welcome. Featured poets only, no open mic.
