Poet Nancy Flynn will be at Nightbird Books on Monday, November 2nd from 6 to 8pm. She is visiting Fayetteville from her home in Portland Oregon and will be reading from her new book Every Door Recklessly Ajar: Poems.
"Every Door Recklessly Ajar: Poems by Nancy Flynn brings a distinctive poetic voice to the world. Whether formally constrained or free verse that bends linearity, these poems range and leap and sing. Drawn to the mysterious and the thorny, Flynn wields language in the service of social and cultural engagement while interrogating the arrogance of a privileged self who claims the authority to speak. These poems encourage a turning back to re-read—for the pleasure of the music, for their multiplicities of resonance, for the way they tango with an array of necessary subjects and deeply felt concerns."
