In continuing our partnership with Barrels Wine Bar, we will be joint hosting poet Sierra Golden on Tuesday at 5:00pm at Barrels. Sierra will read from work in progresses, published work, and her book The Slow Art. We will have copies of the book for sale at the event.
"Golden is a gifted poet, and in her debut collection her words feel as certain as someone working on her twelfth book. I could stack row after row of quotes here for you to see, mining the book until it’s empty, but that would do Golden a disservice. The pleasure of The Slow Art is the narrative that it builds, the story of these (mostly) men and the ocean that torments and rewards them. A 400-page novel could not be as immersive as this narrow collection." - Paul Constant, co-founder of The Seattle Review of Books.
