Holly Wren Spaulding: Familiars

April 5, 2021 @ EST 7:30 pm - 8:10 pm

to receive a Zoom link to this virtual event.

Evocative and intimate, the linked poems in Familiars arise from questions and observations in the more than human world. In characteristically compact lyrics, Holly writes about trees, flowers, magic, touch, memory, erasure, power, and her grief over the changing climate. Familiars takes us on a three-part journey, with fresh observations of the natural world and our relationship to it. 


Spaulding will be in conversation with Sejal Shah.


Holly Wren Spaulding’s poems, articles and reviews have appeared in The New York Times, The Nation, Michigan Quarterly Review, Witness, The Ecologist, and in the book We Are Everywhere: The Irresistible Rise of Global Anti-Capitalism (Verso, 2003). Alice Greene & Co. published two earlier collections of poems, If August (2017) and Pilgrim (2014). A passionate collaborator, teacher, editor, and writer, Spaulding founded Poetry Forge in 2012, and teaches creative writing for Interlochen College of Creative Arts.
