Join Laurie Byro for a discussion of selected works by Linda Pastan (available here or stop by the Help Desk.)
Linda Pastan (May 27, 1932 – January 30, 2023) was an American poet of Jewish background. From 1991 to 1995 she was Poet Laureate of Maryland. She was known for writing short poems that address topics like family life, domesticity, motherhood, the female experience, aging, death, loss and the fear of loss, as well as the fragility of life and relationships. Her most recent collections of poetry include Insomnia, Traveling Light, and A Dog Runs Through It. Pastan published 15 books of poetry and a number of essays. Two of her collections of poems were nominated for the National Book Award and one for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize.
Mary Makofske will read poems from her sixth book No Angels, published by Kelsay Books. Reviewer J.R. Solonche praised “Makofske’s craft, her exquisite eye and ear for detail, and her deeply felt empathy for all things human.” An open reading follows. Refreshments will be served.
For most people, pain is an occasional visitor that stays a short time. But for some people pain takes up residence in the body and mind. According to a 2021 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 5 adults in the United States experience chronic pain on most days or every day. Knowing where to turn for relief can be a challenge.
