Lisa Jarnot Reading & Signing (In-Store)

Please join us as we welcome Lisa Jarnot for a reading and signing, in partnership with the Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry and Flood Editions.

Lisa Jarnot began “A Princess Magic Presto Spell” after the birth of her daughter, setting the modest goal of writing three words a day. Now a decade-long work-in-progress, these fragments of language are collected into a shorthand chronicle of family life that is intimate and yet open to all the world. Full of nimble transitions and non sequiturs, the poem captures the harrowing joys of parenthood alongside funerals, dentists, divorces, in a give and take between the routine and the extraordinary.

Lisa Jarnot was born in Buffalo, NY and educated at the State University of New York at Buffalo. She is the author of several collections of poetry, including “Some Other Kind of Mission” (1996), “Ring of Fire” (2001), “Black Dog Songs” (2003), “Night Scenes” (2008), “Joie De Vivre: Selected Poems 1992-2012” (2013) and “A Princess Magic Presto Spell” (2019).

This is an in-person event. Masks are required for all attendees. Copies of Lisa Jarnot’s books will be available for purchase and signing at the event, courtesy of Subterranean Books.
