Lee Chilcote: How to Live in Ruins
Friday, January 11, 2019, 6:30-8:30pm
Please join us for the launch of Lee Chilcote’s new poetry collection, How to Live in Ruins. Lee will be reading with poets Jim Garrett and Diane Vogel Ferri, who also have new books out from Finishing Line Press. There will be wine, snacks, and good conversation. “Lee Chilcote has written a beautifully crafted homage to Cleveland; one that manages to embrace the complications of both parenthood and urban living. Far from reverential, these poems are tributes nevertheless – suffused with a dark humor, clarity, and empathy that override the sometimes knotty reality of life in the Rust Belt.” – Kelly Fordon, author of Garden of the Blind
