Presented by Gemini Ink Literary Arts Center
May 6, 2016
A reading & book signing with Sharon Olinka and Veronica Golos.
Veronica Golos is the author of "Vocabulary of Silence" (Red Hen Press, 2/11). An exploration of war and its witnessing-from-afar, “Golos takes the fragments, the bits and pieces that reach us from the battlefield, and weaves them with a morality and a sorrow,” states writer and journalist Barbara Nimri Aziz.
Sharon Olinka is the author of "The Good City" (Marsh Hawk Press) and her work has appeared in Prairie Schooner, Nimrod, Poetry Wales, New York Quarterly, The Texas Observer, and many other publications. She was a guest writer for the Department Studies at Dokuz Eylul University in Izmir, Turkey. “Becoming Donkey Lady" and "Love me as I am" are from a long poem sequence called "The Donkey Lady."
