Institute for Policy Studies and board chair Ethelbert Miller join Split This Rock to celebrate Melissa Tuckey and the launch of her award-winning first book.
Join Melissa Tuckey, co-founder of Split This Rock, for a book launch and reading from her award-winning book of poems, Tenuous Chapel. With special guests, Sarah Browning, E. Ethelbert Miller and Joseph Ross.
Tenuous Chapel was chosen by Charles Simic for the prestigious ABZ first book award. In his forward, Simic writes, "If the hope of any poem is to render the experience in a fresh unsettling way, she has that gift." The book moves from the intimate and personal to the communal and political. It's a search for the sacred in a time of war and environmental destruction.
Join us as we toast Melissa and celebrate this exciting book of poems!
