POETRY READING and BOOKSIGNING “Assorted Snapshots” By Holly Wilson Cover and Photos by Deborah Coy Sunday, July 15 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm Teatro Paraguas 3205 Calle Marie, Santa Fé Bring One Poem To Share In Poetry Circle To Follow Presentation of “Assorted Snapshots” I will be doing a poetry reading and booksigning at Paraguras on Sunday, July 15 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. I am also inviting poets to participate in a poetry circle and share one poem after my presentation. Holly Wilson has been writing poetry since she was a teenager. She published three chapbooks in her 20's, but has now published her first "real" book. "Assorted Snapshots" is a collection of poems she wrote in the 70's, 80's, and 90's organized around ten different themes. They symbolize her earlier "pre-renaissance" poetry written before she went through a dry spell while living in San Diego. Each section of the book focuses on one of the themes, and includes a photo of her that represents the theme, an essay that talks about why the topic is important to her, and several poems related to that theme. Holly will be reading a selection of poems that represent the ten themes, ending with four performance pieces that incorporate drumming and dancing. Her book will be on sale for $10. The reading will be followed by a poetry circle in which each poet is invited to share one poem.

What we're about

Santa Fe has a mind-boggling number of great poets and writers, known and unknown. This group is a venue for them all. It is the central "bulletin board" for Santa Fe's poetry and prose scene.

As a member you'll receive announcements of book launches, workshops, close readings, poetry festivals, ekphrastic events, open mics, and lots of other activities involving poetry and prose.

People are always asking us what is going on around town and Meetup is a great venue to list the events and strengthen the poetry and writing community. If you know of an event that you don't see listed on here, let us know and we'll get it posted.
