Anamaria Crowe Serrano and Helena Mulkerns (July15)

Filed under: Readings — tvivf @ 2:25

Anamaria Crowe Serrano and Helena Mulkerns read at Chapters, today lunch time. Very impressive. Particularly I liked Anamaria’s poem about her grandfather and his silence about what part he played in the Spanish Civil War. It’s a top-class poem I hope I see in print soon. And Helena’s story-poem about the ubiquitous United Nations blue plastic tarpaulin which does so many jobs for people who have nothing else to cover them, or catch water for them or act as groundsheets for them. Very moving and incredibly down-to-earth writing. Definitely a reading to remember. Sizeable group of listeners too.
