Ancient Light

April 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Join Oklahoma Contemporary, the UCO English Department and poet Kimberly Blaeser in celebration of National Poetry Month. Blaeser will read from her latest book, Ancient Light, which uses lyric, narrative and concrete poems to give voice to some of the most pressing ecological and social issues of our time. The collection invites readers to see with a new intimacy the worlds they inhabit. Blaeser brings readers to the brink, immerses them in the darkest regions of the Anthropocene and in the dangerous fallacies of capitalism and then offers hope. Ultimately, as the poems enact survivance, they reclaim Indigenous stories and lifeways.
