Time & Location
About The Event
Live from The Hallowed Halls, harpist Lily Breshears joins forces with poet Liz Lampman for a one-off performance of Another Fortune & Other Poems, the debut collection by Lampman, and most recent release from Buckmxn Publishing.
Another Fortune & Other Poems delivers a revitalizing jolt to the world of poetry. Lampman’s masterly craft doesn’t get in the way of approachability, and her word choices are sharp, delivering descriptions of rare accuracy that put the reader into the poet’s shoes. The collection also features watercolor illustrations by Lettie Jane Rennekamp, which amplify the lust and longing in Lampman’s words.
Willamette Week describes Lily Breshears’ band as “a real treat” and “almost a genre unto themselves.” While Portland Mercury says of Lily’s music, “strange but beautiful, like something you’d find in a futuristic speakeasy.”
Be a part of the live studio audience as Buckmxn captures this collaborative performance for an audiobook which will be available at a future date.
Refreshments provided. Fortunes will be told. Admission is free.
