Stubborn Praise (video): A reading with Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, James Crews and Danusha Laméris



Invite yourself to an evening of poetry, recorded on May 29, 2020, that wholly meets the moment, its losses and fears, and helps us also to see small kindnesses, stubborn blessings, and renegade beauty. After the readings is a conversation harvested from questions and comments about how to make a poem turn, what to do with anger, and how the poets chose (or were chosen by) poetry. All three poets are celebrating new collections of poetry:

Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, Hush, Middle Creek Publishing (available for pre-order)

James Crews, Bluebird, Green Writer’s Press

Danusha Laméris, Bonfire Opera, University of Pittsburgh Press
