VIRTUAL POETRY BOOK CLUB // Bright Scythe
Due to COVID-19, this will now be a VIRTUAL bookclub hosted by Zoom conference.
RSVP to email@example.com to receive the meeting link and password.
January's Poetry Book Club pick is Bright Scythe: Selected Poems by Tomas Transtromer. This is a free event. No purchase is necessary to attend, but you can purchase the book ahead of time on our website here.
Each month, Poetry Club meets to discuss one must-read book of poems, whether a timeless classic or an award-winning contemporary. Led by Napa poet Kathleen Patterson, who has been an enthusiastic book club member since its beginning, meetings are open to all levels of poetry readers, both the curious and the committed.
Tomas Transtr mer (1931-2015), winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, is Sweden's most acclaimed poet. Known for sharp imagery, startling metaphors and deceptively simple diction, his luminous poems offer mysterious glimpses into the deepest facets of humanity, often through the lens of the natural world.
