Tangled in Vow and Beseech

An evening of poetry with Jill McCabe Johnson

Tuesday, April 9th at 6pm
In the Black Box

An evening of poetry, conversations, and artwork with Jill McCabe Johnson and guests Martha Farish and Kate Geddes. Presented by the Orcas Island Library.

“Tangled in Vow & Beseech vows to remember what we lose and beseeches us to embrace every moment. Throughout, McCabe Johnson writes intimately about family, nature, and animals, while also protesting the violences of religion, patriarchy, and racism. The lyricism of these poems carries the speaker into the “clear slipstream of memory” to “river me home. River me home.”
