The Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley, MA is pleased to announce a new in-house-curated Poetry Book Club. Meeting once-a-month on the third Monday of the month at 6pm beginning September 19th at The Odyssey Bookshop, 9 College Street, South Hadley, MA; this club is open to any and all who are interested in modern poetry. We will be reading collections by a diverse group of modern poets who are in direct dialogue with events and experiences that question what it is to live (and die) within(/out) the confines of late-stage capitalist emergency existence. Jesse Hassinger, Odyssey’s Assistant Manager and First Editions Club Coordinator, will be curating this ongoing series with input and occasional collaboration with The Boutelle-Day Poetry Center at Smith College and Poetry at The Care Center in Holyoke.
When possible the Odyssey will be welcoming the poets in-person to public events scheduled prior to the Book Club’s regular meeting so that attendees can have an opportunity to hear the author read and speak about their work.
The dates and titles for the currently scheduled club meetings:
Monday, March 20th at 6pm: Mahogany L. Browne's Chrome Valley
Monday, April 17th at 6pm: Charif Shanahan's Trace Evidence
