Home & Inheritance: Amelia Díaz Ettinger & Teresa K. Miller
New poetry collections about homelands, generational trauma, what we inherit and how we face our current moment.
Teresa K. Miller‘s Borderline Fortune is collection that explores inherited trauma on an individual and communal level, from a National Poetry Series–winning poet who “refus[es] the mind’s limits” (Carol Muske-Dukes).
Amelia Díaz Ettinger‘s Learning to Love a Western Sky is a reflection of the assimilation of the immigrant into the host landscape. It is the transition from nostalgia to integration and the review of aging, loving, and betrayal in this foreign home.
Moderated by Erika Stevens.
