Ice Arch by Katharine Coles

Red Hen Press is bringing in the poets.

Authors Katharine Coles, Terrance Hayes, Peggy Shumaker, and Dan Vera will read from their works, Wednesday, March 13th at Boston Court Performing Arts Center.

“In 2010, Katharine Coles sailed across the Drake Passage….The Earth Is Not Flat, the collection of poems written out of her adventure, invokes the vast land—seascapes, as well as the fauna — penguins, seals, whales, and scientists—she encountered along the way.”


Poet Peggy Shumaker newest book of poems is Toucan Nest. She has “given readings in art galleries, a governor’s mansion, a clearing in the woods, an abandoned bank, on reservations, in libraries, at a gold dredge, under the hoodoos at Bryce Canyon, on a riverboat…” (You get the picture.)


In Dan Vera’s Speaking Wiri Wiri, a “work of historical insight and wry wit,…Carmen Miranda makes an appearance, as do Captain Kirk, Vladimir Nabokov, and José Martí in a literary landscape careening lyrically between lost and found.”
