Join poets Dennis Nurkse and Sean Sutherland to hear works from Nurkse’s new book A Country of Strangers.
In an illuminating collection of selected poems over thirty-five years, one of our most essential American poets casts a clear eye on our politics, our places, and our heart’s hidden stories.
About the Authors:
Throughout this matchless career, over eleven books, Dennis Nurkse has crafted visceral lines that celebrate the fragility of what simply exists—birdsong, moonrise, illness, water towers—and the complexity of human perception, our stumble forward through it toward understanding.
Sean Sutherland has had poems most recently published in the literary magazines: The Florida Review, and Hypertext among others. His poems are also included in two anthologies The Writers Studio at 30, and Poetry for the Actor- A Guide to Deeper Truth. A MacDowell Colony Fellow, Sean was nominated for a Pushcart Prize by the literary magazine Sleet in 2019, and won honorable mention for The Maine Review’s poetry prize in 2015.
