Elk River Books will host a reading by Bozeman poet Jodie Hollander from her collection, The Humane Society (The Tall Lighthouse, 2012) on Thursday, October 17 at 7 p.m.
Described as “romantic, surreal and tender, [The Humane Society] paints a family portrait that is a mixture of memoir, ghost story and artistic obsession, as well as being an elegy for an older, more mannered, world.”
Hollander, who is originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was raised in a family of classical musicians. She studied poetry in England and has published her work in England, Australia and the U.S. She received a Fulbright Fellowship in South Africa, a Hawthornden Fellowship in Scotland, and a Wilfred Owen Association scholarship to study at Ty Newydd National Writers’ Centre in Wales.
Hollander’s presentation is free, open to the public, and will be followed by a reception and signing. The event takes place at Elk River Books, 115 E. Callender St., in Livingston.
