A Poetry Reading with Nauset Press (In Person)

Three poets, Caitlin McDonnell, Carolyn Steinhoff, and Betsy Andrews (who will be accompanied by art and music), will read from their books of poems published by Nauset Press. Each in her own way, these poets grapple with what it means to write from within the impossibly ramped-up state of perpetual crisis in which we all live: planetary collapse, pandemics, authoritarianism, loneliness, loss. Each finds and relishes the persistent joys that come to us in spite of everything as we live out our days.
