Release Party for SPINE by Carolyn Guinzio

  • Nightbird Books 205 West Dickson Street Fayetteville, AR, 72701 United States (map)

Join us on Tuesday November 10th at the release party for Carolyn Guinzio's new book, Spine. Carolyn will read from the poetry collection and display some of her amazing photography as well. She will of course be available to sign books and speak with individuals during the reception following the reading.

"Sometimes an echoing or answering poem, sometimes a second voice, the “ghost text” in Spine, Carolyn Guinzio’s fourth collection, mimics and examines the difficulty of processing information from multiple sources at once. The distraction that accompanies reading ruptures the experience of these poems. Too much and too little co-exist here: the challenges of living in rural areas that technological advances have left behind throw into relief the disorienting speed with which the world is changing."

Carolyn Guinzio is the author of Spoke & Dark (Red Hen, 2012), winner of the To The Lighthouse/A Room Of Her Own Prize, Quarry (Parlor, 2008) and West Pullman (Bordighera, 2005). A Chicago native, she lives in Fayetteville, Arkansas where she edits YEW: A Journal of Innovative Writing & Images By Women.
