Catherine Carter Poetry Reading

Catherine Carter will visit City Lights Bookstore on Wednesday, November 13th at 6:30 p.m. She will read poems from her new collection, Larvae of the Nearest Stars. Her third collection begins and ends by confronting the necessity--and the promise--to bear witness to the world as it is, addressing how we can manage to love the world in the face of everything that makes doing so a challenge. The poems in this engaging and meditative collection are sometimes dark, often funny, but always surprising.

Catherine Carter is also the author of The Memory of Gills and The Swamp Monster at Home. Her work has appeared in Best American Poetry, Orion, Ploughshares, Poetry, and elsewhere. She lives with her husband in Cullowhee, North Carolina, where she teaches at Western Carolina University.
