Reading Between the Wines with Kathryn Nuernberger

Please join us for Reading Between the Wines at Bond Street on August 11th at 6 p.m.! Poetry by Kathryn Nuernberger will be paired with wines that share similar "notes." This event is free to attend, and the wine tasting is available for purchase. • • • In this fiercely feminist ecopoetic collection, Kathryn Nuernberger reclaims love and resilience in an age of cruelty. As the speaker―an artist and intellectual―finds herself living through a rocky marriage in a conservative rural state, she maintains her sense of identity by studying the science and folklore of plants historically used for birth control. Her botanical portraits of common herbs like Queen Anne’s lace and pennyroyal are interwoven with lyric biographies of groundbreaking women ecologists whose stories have been left untold in textbooks. With equal parts righteous fury and tender wisdom, Rue reassesses the past and recontextualizes the present to tell a story about breaking down, breaking through, and breaking into an honest, authentic expression of self. • • • Kathryn Nuernberger is the author of two previous poetry collections, The End of Pink and Rag & Bone. She has also written a collection of lyric essays, Brief Interviews with the Romantic Past. Poems from Rue have appeared in 32 Poems, Cincinnati Review, Crazyhorse, Field, Gettysburg, Tin House, on Poetry Daily, and elsewhere. She teaches in the MFA program at the University of Minnesota.
