Katherine Soniat Poetry Reading
Katherine Soniat returns to City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, November 4th at 3 p.m. She will present her eighth collection of poetry, Polishing the Glass Storm, from LSU Press.
With Polishing the Glass Storm, Katherine Soniat constructs a riveting sequence of verse that explores how archetype can expand both personal vision and narrative perspective as we hone our experiences into an understanding of shared commonality. In poems that weave a linguistic web between the metaphysical and material realms, Soniat reminds us of the many ways in which language can reinforce otherwise frail connections between vision and experience.
Katherine Soniat has taught at the University of New Orleans, Hollins University, the University of North Carolina at Asheville, and Virginia Tech, where she was a faculty member for twenty years. Her previous collections include Bright Stranger, The Swing Girl, and A Shared Life, winner of the Iowa Poetry Prize and selected by Mary Oliver for a Virginia Prize in Poetry.
