This Thursday we’ll have award-winning poet Moira Linehan at the store for readings from her new book, If No Moon. Her work explores the effects of tragedy and loss--how grief consumes us, how it filters into even our mundane experiences, and ultimately how we can rediscover beauty and joy in the darkest times. Moira’s work is a resounding call to those who have suffered or are suffering, that our future journey begins with a single step.
“Wind-whipped on the promontory of loss, these winged poems are heroic answers to the void that Linehan's painstaking work shows us is a door.”
--Jack Myers, former poet laureate of Texas and author of Routine Heaven
Moira Linehan's collection, If No Moon, was selected by the poet Dorianne Laux as the winner of the 2006 Crab Orchard Series in Poetry Open Competition. Moira's poems have appeared in such journals as Green Mountains Review, Notre Dame Review, Orion, Poetry, Poetry East, and Prairie Schooner. Twice her work has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
