Poetry Reading with Clifford Brooks III
Join us as we host an up-and-coming Georgia poet who has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and Georgia Author of the Year.
Clifford Brooks's first book of poetry, The Draw of Broken Eyes and Whilring Metaphysics, captures the southern experience with poems that Dinty Moore calls "a jazzy, aromatic, and spirited poetic mandala."
"Like Samuel Taylor Coleridge's mariner, we are in a maelstrom of many names. Cliff Brooks calls this maddening place Ignoracium and in The Draw of Broken Eyes and Whirling Metaphysics he gives us both a lexicon for exploring and finding a way out. The spirits of Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti are alive and restless here." --James Morrow
More About Bound to Be Read Books
Bound to Be Read Books was opened in 2005 after Atlanta resident Jeff McCord realized there were no independent bookstores serving southeast Atlanta. His bookstore now has an impressive array of new and used books, discount books, CDs, calendars and gifts. It also carries a selection of rare and collectible books and staff will search for and special order any titles not currently in its inventory. The store is working on a used book buy-back program, as well as a "loyal customer" incentive program. Stop in to browse the shelves and say hi to Kona, the resident bookstore cat.
