Poetry Book Club
The Neither Rhyme Nor Reason Poetry Book Club at Scuppernong Books meets at 7:00pm on the third Monday of every month for a free discussion of one collection by one poet. All are welcome to join us.
This month's meeting will be on Monday, September 16 at 7 pm and we'll discuss Steve Scafidi's collection, For Love of Common Words.
“Steve Scafidi's poem 'The Egg Suckers' made me laugh, fidget, and ponder my own path through this omnivorous world. It reminds us that things are constantly happening beneath our very feet, that a secret history is being forged that we'll never read about in the newspapers. Like Theodor Roethke, Scafidi describes a nature that is at least as nasty as it is nice and then lets us know that—oops!—we're on the menu, too. Re-reading 'The Egg Suckers,' I laughed again. And then I made breakfast.” —David Kirby
