In celebration of National Poetry Month, SOMOS & the Taos Art Museum at Fechin House present:
Renée Gregorio’s poetry is informed equally by the stillness, expansiveness and landscape of northern New Mexico as it is by her travels in a wide mix of countries, cultures and languages. Renée’s recent books include Drenched and Snow Falling on Snow. She’ll be reading from a new manuscript, Communion, which was recently shortlisted for the Phillip Levine Prize.
John Brandi has been an active walker, writer, and visual artist since boyhood rambles in the mountains of California. In 2015 a limited edition of his Southwest prose poems, Into the Dream Maze, was issued by the Press at the Palace of the Governors, followed by Planet Pilgrim, his tribute to Japanese poet Nanao Sakaki. He will read from The Great Unrest, his new collection of poems from White Pine Press.
