May 23 2012 7:00 pm
—Philip Zaleski,editor of the annual Best Spiritual Writing volumes and co-author of Prayer: A History
Editors Ilya Kaminsky and Katherine Towler have gathered conversations with nineteen of America’s leading poets, reflecting upon their diverse experiences with spirituality and the craft of writing. Bringing together poets who are Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim, Pagan, Native American, Wiccan, agnostic, and otherwise, this book offers frank and thoughtful consideration of themes too often polarized and politicized in our society. Participants include Li-Young Lee, Jane Hirshfield, Carolyn Forché, Gerald Stern, Christian Wiman, Joy Harjo, and Gregory Orr, and others, all wrestling with difficult questions of human existence and the sources of art.
Katherine Towler is the author of a trilogy of novels, Snow Island, Evening Ferry, and Island Light. She consults with schools and non-profits on publications and promotional materials, and teaches in the MFA Program in Writing at Southern New Hampshire University. She lives in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
We the People is a lecture series that looks at issues at the intersection of religion and current events, faith and life. It is comprised of the Exeter Congretational Church, First Unitarian Universalist Society of Exeter, Christ Church of Exeter, Phillips Exeter Academy, and Water Street Bookstore.
