Holly Day Book Release Poetry Throwdown


Come rejoice in the latest collection of poetry by celebrated Twin Cities historian and poet Holly Day. 'In This Place, She is Her Own' steeps deeply in memory, death, and absurdity, while somehow remaining upbeat. Holly will recite portions of the book with support from the following poets:

Sam Pekarske (Milwaukee)
Mark Berriman
Laura Brandenberg
Georgia Lundeen
Brian Beatty

Get into it.
Here's what Holly has to say about her book:

"This is a collection of poetry about change, and the passage of time and how no matter how hard you try, there is just no way to stop it. For me, writing has been a way to try to briefly stop time, to capture as much of what’s going on around me and what’s happening to me as possible. While I’ve never been much for photography, I have always been one for writing, and this collection is a book of snapshots of things I don’t want to forget."
