Book Launch and Reading: Juliana Leslie at the Capitola Book Café
January 12, 2013 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm | Capitola Book Café
Please help celebrate the publication of Juliana Leslie’s Green is for World at Capitola Book Cafe this coming Saturday, January 12. The reception is at 5 pm, the reading at 6pm.
“Green Is for World is a book that expands on the childlike register of its title: it is open, vulnerable, curious… Maybe we should refer to Juliana Leslie’s poems as cascades, not collages; maybe she has given us a new form. If so, it is a form of beauty, mystery, and thoughtfulness. They give me courage, and I think others will find courage in her gentle cascades as well.” —Ange Mlinko, National Poetry Series Judge
“Juliana Leslie’s exciting new book is constantly opening up and breaking into light, revelation, and sound. Green Is for World is a surprising book, wondrously achieved and lovingly composed.” —Peter Gizzi
