Laura Stott and Rob Carney

When: Tue., Feb. 24, 7 p.m. 2015

Laura Stott and Rob Carney will be appearing together to read and sign their new works at Weller Book Works. Laura Stott's new work, In the Museum of Coming and Going, has been receiving raves: “These are poems of travel and travail, of losing one’s bearings but finding one’s way. In short, they transform us—into crows and lizards, into sacred cows in a blue city, into snakes or sea otters or sometimes stars. These poems invite and entice. Do not lose your eyes, says one poem. Child, hold God in those hands, says another. May we all grow so gently bold. May we all hold and keep holding.” Rob Carney's Story Problems has been equally well received: Rob Carney must believe in the power of myths: the poetry that can't be explained by science, the stories with the power to change the course of our lives unexpectedly, late at night, around a crackling campfire.
