We're hosting Kate Greenstreet, who is touring in support of her new book Young Tambling, which Ahsahta Press has recently published. Kate will also screen several of her recent video poems, including Cloth, a "statement" of poetics she made for the journal Evening Will Come. She will be reading on Wednesday, February 6th at 6 PM.
Young Tambling consists of poetry and prose, much of it somewhat elliptical, and resembles a kind of experimental memoir, but one where the word memoir doesn't bother with its usual categories of truth and authenticity. At the same time, it doesn't altogether abandon its function as a representation of experience.
Until recently, Greenstreet lived in County Cork, Ireland, with her husband Max. They are currently on tour for a year.
