Kristin Fitzpatrick - My Pulse is an Earthquake

Saturday, January 9, 2016 - 4:00pm

The nine stories in My Pulse Is an Earthquake take place in the clutches of grief. Characters struggle to make sense of sudden losses of life, love, and community. In each story, we see the darkness that can surface during the happy moments in life — weddings, births, promotions, the opening night of a director’s favorite play, or the best performance of a dancer’s career, when no one important is there to watch. We enter daydreams and night terrors where the dead are within reach, pointing out how they could have been saved.

Left Coast Writers®: Rebecca Foust - Paradise Drive

Saturday, September 12, 2015 - 7:00pm

"In Rebecca Foust's splendid book-length sonnet sequence, Paradise Drive, we come upon a Pilgrim contemplating the deadly sins while hiding out in the bathrooms at some of Marin County, California's swankiest parties. As the Pilgrim swaggers into an idiosyncratic, believable, frail spirituality, her unmediated, un-medicated new life emerges. The sonnets of this new life are jagged, fresh, and formed in only the way a stunningly skilled poet can craft them.
