Kathryn Kirkpatrick’s Poetry Collection
Kathryn Kirkpatrick returns to City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, July 13th at 3 p.m. to read from her new poetry collection The Fisher Queen: New and Selected Poems. Uniting the best from Kirkpatrick’s previous collections and new poems, The Fisher Queen embarks on a mythical quest to explore the wounding of the Fisher Queen in a 20th and 21st century wasteland of environmental devastation while tackling complex themes such as existing as a woman in the natural world and traversing the sometimes liminal boundaries of region, nation and class.
Kathryn Kirkpatrick is a three-time winner of the Brockman-Campbell Award with her poetry collections Our Held Animal Breath, Her Small Hands Were Not Beautiful, and The Body’s Horizon. Other poetry collections of her’s include Beyond Reason, which won the Roanoke Chowan Award, and the SIBA Poetry Award Finalist, Out of the Garden. A scholar as well as a poet, Kirkpatrick currently serves as a professor at Appalachian State University. To reserve copies of The Fisher Queen please call City Lights Bookstore in Sylva, North Carolina at 828-586-9499.
