Margaret Gibson (The Glass Globe) Author Talk and Q&A at Savoy Bookshop & Cafe

10/19/2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Savoy Bookshop & Café presents an author talk and Q&A with Margaret Gibson for the new book, The Glass Globe!

This event is free, but registration is requested.

About the Book
With The Glass Globe, celebrated poet Margaret Gibson completes a trilogy distinguished by its meditative focus on the author’s experience of her late husband’s Alzheimer’s disease. In this new collection, she blends elegies of personal bereavement with elegies for the earth during the ongoing global crisis wrought by climate change. Gibson’s poems personalize the vastness of climate catastrophe while simultaneously enlarging personal grief beyond the limits of self-absorption. A work of great compassion and vision, The Glass Globe is a necessary, heartbreaking book from one of our most compelling poets.

She has received grants from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Academy of American Poets.
