Help me celebrate the publication of my chapbook Katherine of Aragon: A Collection of Poems (Finishing Line Press, 2016) and my forthcoming chapbook Notations: The Imagined Diary of Julian of Norwich (Red Bird Chapbooks, 2017) by inviting me to your bookstore, living room, garden, ruin bar, driveway, field, dairy, winery, factory—well you get the picture— almost anywhere—for a fun evening of story telling and poetry. I’ll even bring the wine!
“The genius of Alice Jennings’ chapbook Katherine of Aragon: A Collection of Poems is that the poet has found a form and the words to bridge the span of years between 1485 and 2015 to remind us that Katherine’s abuse at the hands of her husband, Henry the VIII, is yet the fate of too many women, even in this 21st century, and that the empathy we feel for her through Jennings’ seventeen artful poems must be as strong as any we feel for our own mothers, sisters, daughters, friends, and neighbors, whatever the circumstances of their suffering. The genius of this exceptional collection is that the poet has found the exact form and words to say just that.”
