Poetry Reading: E.Lynn Alexander Find Me in the Iris

October 22 @ 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Free

Please join us for a poetry reading at Book and Puppet with E. Lynn Alexander, a local poet, and independent publisher. E. Lynn Alexander’s latest poetry collection, “Find Me in the Iris”, was released in 2022.

Find Me in the Iris, by Lynn Alexander

This is the second book of poetry by E. Lynn Alexander, from Collapse Press. In Find Me in the Iris, she continues to explore the themes of The Shouldspeak Disease on the language of shame and internalized expectations, conditioning, regulating norms, and binaries as increasingly toxic. Exploring the natural, mystical, and spiritual can be restorative acts of reclaiming, connecting us to silenced generations, and ancestral psyche.

We are increasingly self-centered and hierarchal, prone to immediate and empty gratification, consumption, competition, and exhibitionism. To commune and cooperate is to be “weak”, to share knowledge is to lose “advantage”. Where shame is the tool, coerced participation is the result. The desire to diminish and destroy pushes us to channel our energies defensively and we are often depleted.
