Port Angeles poet visits Winslow book shop

Poetry will take the spotlight when Tess Gallagher and Joyce Rudolph visit Eagle Harbor Book Company at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3.

Gallagher’s latest book, “Is, Is Not: Poems,” is a luminescent exploration of the natural world and of self. Restorative in every sense, it upends our notions of linear time, evokes the spirit and sanctity of place, and hovers daringly at the threshold of what language can nearly deliver while offering alternative corollaries as gifts of its failures.

Guided by humor, grace, and a deep inquiry into the natural world, every poem nudges us toward moments of awe. How else except by delight and velocity would we discover the miracle within the ordinary?

Gallagher claims many Wests: the Northwest of America, the Northwest of Ireland, and a West even further to the edge, beyond the physical. These landscapes are charged with invisible energies and inhabited by the people, living and dead, who shape Gallagher’s poems and life.

Admission is free and all are welcome.
