Escape the cold by joining Halifax writers Virginia Konchan and Rachel Lebowitz for an evening of poetry, as Virginia launches Any God Will Do (Carnegie Mellon) and Rachel reads from new work and different collections! Refreshments will be served, and additional food, beverages and books will be available for purchase. Hope to see you there!
Author of two poetry collections, Any God Will Do (Carnegie Mellon, 2020) and The End of Spectacle (Carnegie Mellon, 2018); a collection of short stories, Anatomical Gift (Noctuary Press, 2017); and three chapbooks, including The New Alphabets (Anstruther Press, 2019), Virginia Konchan’s poetry has appeared in The New Yorker, The New Republic, Boston Review, and elsewhere.
