Building Alexandria Book Launch: Clarissa Adkins
May 2, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm EST
Join Clarissa Adkins (Poetry, June 2018) at the launch of her first poetry collection, Building Alexandria. The event will be hosted by Eileen Cleary (Poetry, June 2016) and Clarissa will be interviewed by Rex Arrasmith (Fiction, January 2018; Poetry, June 2020).
“Clarissa Adkins has a mind I’d love to inhabit, fully attuned to the strangenesses of love, parenthood, mortality, and fleeting beauty. These poems are playful, sharp, dextrous, and witty—but they’re also filled with sonic brilliance, her mastery of the musical possibilities of language evident throughout. This is a terrific first book, one that I’ll return to with great pleasure.” — Kevin Prufer, author of The Art of Fiction
