Haunted poetry readings at hello, hello
Rockland — Poets Arielle Greenberg and Kate Greenstreet will present Haunted: Growing Up Female, a co-reading event, Wednesday, Oct. 30, at 6:30 p.m. at hello hello books, 316 Main St., adjacent to Rock City Cafe and accessible via a side door on Orient Street.
Attendees can expect a wide variety of work, from seasonally-appropriate poems that draw upon tarot cards, séances, dreams, witchcraft and other psychic realms "beyond the veil" and traditionally accessed by women, to readings focused women’s historical and present fight for power and the “ghostliness” of women who are denied power.
Greenberg of Belfast is the author of the poetry collections “My Kafka Century” and “Given”; and the chapbooks “Shake Her” and “Farther Down: Songs from the Allergy Trials.” She lives in Belfast, to which she relocated with her family to escape the perils of life in Chicago.
Greenstreet is currently on the road with her new book “Young Tambling.” Her previous books are “case sensitive” and “The Last 4 Things,” all with Ahsahta Press. Her poetry can be found in Denver Quarterly, Chicago Review, Boston Review and other journals.
