Jody Gladding – post-event notes May 13, 2009

Posted by Galaxy in Store Events.

Jody GladdingJody Gladding gave a lovely reading last night, which included poems from her current and past books as well as excerpts of novels she’s translated. She explained that the inspiration for one particular series of poems in her book Rooms and Their Airs came from a medieval guide to health, which included notes on the dangers and benefits of everything from Winter to Lettuce.

During the question and answer session, the audience became involved in a discussion of the footwear sported by several male poets in attendance. (Keen appeared to be a popular brand.) You just never know what you might learn at a Galaxy Bookshop event!
