Poetry Reading: Limn the Mask, with Danielle Notaro
October 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
Hear Danielle Notaro read from her first book of poems, Limn the Mask, which explores ways to express the ineffable self on paper.
Poetry and prose with COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS. In this first book of poems, Danielle Notaro undertakes a quest to write the self on paper. The essence of self-being notoriously resistant to description, she has limned it through interactions with the phenomenal world. These writings, which have unfolded over the course of thirty years, have taken Notaro on a trek through difficult emotional landscapes mining the gold in melancholy, the cure in the wound. Sometimes her task is to sit with paradox and sometimes it is just to sing about the joy of life or the beauty of the natural world. The book is ultimately a celebration of the human capacity to love, in spite of all, and because of all.
