Saturday, October 22nd and Thursday, October 27th


"Reading Vasiliki Katsarou’s poetry is like watching an exquisitely made film: so beautiful are the images moving through time that you want to pause and let your eyes luxuriate over each frame; so beautiful is the music that you don’t want the movement to stop."

That's what poet Aliki Barnstone had to say after reading Memento Tsunami, the new  collection of poems by Vasiliki Katsarou. There will be two opportunities to hear Vasiliki read this October, and to purchase the collection. Come hear the music of her words:

katsarousmMEMENTO TSUNAMI, Vasiliki Katsarou’s first collection of poetry, will be published by Ragged Sky Press in Fall 2011.  MEMENTO TSUNAMI is a collection marked by startling abstract and lyrical poems that draw from a wide variety of cultural influences.  These include her Greek heritage, background in European filmmaking, as well as a childhood among the ghosts of New England Transcendentalism.  Katsarou’s work reflects a nostalgia for origins as well as a 21st-century visionary impulse to reconcile disparate worlds.

This Saturday, May 21, 2011 at 6pm Vasiliki Katsarou reads at The Cornelia St. Cafe in the West Village with Dean Kostos, Angelo Verga, Sharon Olinka and George Wallace. 

New Book by Lorraine Henrie Lins
EHWD poet Lorraine Henrie Lins announces her new chapbook, "I Called It Swimming," published by Finishing Line Press. 
A super review: "This amazing book creates a synthesis between land and sea, desire and conformity. It’s like she opens the windows of her life to let you look at her struggles to remain whole, and then closes them gently, so as not to get dust in your eye. It’s a brave, guided tour of her world.  Lins is the new docent of poetry – she has the talent to make her experience sound new.”
--Hal Sirowitz, Former Poet Laureate of Queens, NY and author of:  Mother Said, Before, During and After, and Father Said
