Left Bank Books welcomes award-winning poets francine j. harris and Carl Phillips who will discuss their new books of poetry, “Here is the Sweet Hand” (harris) and “Pale Colors in a Tall Field” (Phillips), on Facebook Live at 7pm CDT on September 16. Join us on our Facebook Live Page and order copies of “Here is the Sweet Hand” and “Pale Colors in a Tall Field” from Left Bank Books. The poems in “Here is the Sweet Hand” explore solitude as a way of seeing. In particular, the speakers in francine j. harris’ third collection explore the mystique, and myth, of female loneliness as it relates to blackness, aging, landscape and artistic tradition. Carl Phillips’s new poetry collection, “Pale Colors in a Tall Field,” is a meditation on the intimacies of thought and body as forms of resistance. The poems are both timeless and timely, asking how we can ever truly know ourselves in the face of our own remembering and inevitable forgetting.
