Tunnel into Morning, a Newly Published Poetry Book Release Party- Wednesday, June 8th at 7:00pm
In the Chicago Waldorf School Lower Eurythmy Room
Join award winning poet Maureen Flannery for a poetry reading, book signing and celebration of her new book, Tunnel into Morning.
This latest book pulls together decades of her work on such diverse topics as child-rearing, love, aging, Ireland, farm life, western land, art, humus, and, of course, death. (Billy Collins says death is what inspires poets to get out of bed in the morning)
Maureen is one of Chicago’s most widely published poets, having had over five hundred poems accepted in several hundred literary publications and anthologies. Her other books include Destiny Whispers to the Beloved, Ancestors in the Landscape (nominated for a Pulitzer Prize), A Fine Line, Remembered into Life, and the anthology Knowing Stones.
Come hear the acclaimed singer and conductor of The Lakeside Singers perform Maureen’s poems (which he has set to music). Enjoy refreshments (chocolate is promised), and hear our own office manager transform into the poet that she is. Children welcome. Inspire the budding writers composers, and singers in your family.
