Mischa Willett, "Phases (Poiema Poetry Series Book 22)"
Mischa Willett, poet and host of the podcast Poems for the People, and New Mexico-based poet Lauren Camp will read from their recent collections, both of which explore family and migration. A Q&A will follow. In PHASES (Cascade Books), Mischa Willett’s playful experiments with form are centered by a colloquy across history and place, namely Rome, where Willett’s family immigrated from. The poems are as interested in the creeping penumbral edge of language as they are in the shadowy fact of faith. In her Dorset Prize-winning new collection, ONE HUNDRED HUNGERS (Tupelo Press), Lauren Camp explores the lives of a first-generation Arab-American girl and her Jewish-Iraqi parent. Camp tells overlapping stories of food and ritual, immigration and adaptation, evoking her father’s boyhood in Baghdad in the 1940s at a time when tensions began to emerge along ethnic and religious lines. She also draws upon memories of Sabbath dinners in her grandparents’ new home in America to reveal how family culture persists.
