Reading/Signing for “When She Was Bad” by Gabrielle Freeman, with Kathleen Nalley & Glenis Redmond

This event is a reading also featuring poets Kathleen Nalley & Glenis Redmond. The theme of this reading is “Witch, Whore, Crone” and is inspired by the archetypes of female characters in literature and performance art. Attendees are encouraged to not take themselves or the content too seriously, and perhaps even come dressed as a witch, whore, or crone...

About the book: "The poems of Gabrielle Freeman’s When She Was Bad are by turns amorous, witty, fierce, ironic and erudite, but they are always sensual and often erotic.  As the title suggests, Freeman explores the promises and surprises of the human heart, and her deft free verse addresses temptations, rewards and disappointments.  Her bold enquiries sharpen both her eye and her tongue, but her first collection is far from single-minded, as she makes room for owls, spider wort, Bela Lugosi, Stephen King, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Renoir. When She Was Bad is entertaining and enlightening, and with its publication  Gabrielle Freeman steps onto the stage in full voice, singing true."
