Please join us in a celebration and reading from Adrienne Amundsen’s latest book, Dog Days of the Pandemic Summer, a compelling poetry collection documenting a personal and collective journey into and out of the COVID experience. In this, the third volume in a series of poetry books that combine deep listening and memorable expression, Adrienne Amundsen once again captures the spirit of our times.
"Adrienne Amundsen’s new book engages political corruption, a worldwide pandemic, and the threat of global extinction with a fierce eye and a grieving heart. Amundsen’s book is a visionary collection, reminiscent of the poetry of Whitman. Her truth-saying and lush imagery provide food for the hungry soul."
