“Where the Light Feeds” Reading and Release
April 9 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join us for a book release and reading with Susannah Lodge-Rigal and Nancy Woo.
I’d Rather Be Lightning is a love song to
the earth, celebrating what we stand to lose.
These poems are “throwing a tantrum” about
the climate crisis, written by a “child / of
imperialism whining about freedom / from the
bondage of stuff.” What do you get when you
combine capitalism, environmentalism, ecology,
globalization, fascism, economic crisis, and
global pandemic? Nancy Lynée Woo transmutes
anxiety into dynamic and playful poems, writing
into the absurdity of the global crises facing
humanity with a soft wit, enduring hope, and
deep love for the more-than-human world.
