Guest Writers Series | Jericho Brown and Heather June Gibbons

This event is free and open to the public and will take place at the Finch Lane Art Gallery, 54 Finch Lane, Salt Lake City, 84102

Join Jericho Brown (The New Testament) and Heather June Gibbons (Her Mouth as Souvenir) as they discuss and sign their works as part of the Guest Writers Series. 

The New Testament by Jericho Brown

In the world of Jericho Brown's second book, disease runs through the body, violence runs through the neighborhood, memories run through the mind, trauma runs through generations. Almost eerily quiet in even the bluntest of poems, Brown gives us the ache of a throat that has yet to say the hardest thing--and the truth is coming on fast.

Her Mouth as Souvenir by Heather June Gibbons

Poet Heather June Gibbons conjures belief in the absence of faith, loneliness in the digital age, beauty in the face of absurdity--all through the cataract of her sunglasses' cracked lens. In this debut collection, we are shown a world so turbulent, anxious, and beautiful, we know it must be ours. Under pressure, these poems sing.
