Celebrate National Poetry Month with ‘An Evening with Bianca Stone’ 

Wednesday, April 13 at 7 p.m. — VIRTUAL — Celebrate National Poetry Month as Bianca Stone joins our virtual stage for an evening of poetry.  Stone will be reading from her latest collection, “What is Otherwise Infinite.”

Written in four sections with incisive and vivid lyrical language, Bianca Stone’s “What is Otherwise Infinite” considers how we find our place in the world through themes of philosophy, religion, environment, myth, and psychology. “I deal only in the hardest pain-revivers, symbols and tongues,” writes Stone. “I want to tell you only / in the intimacy of our discomfort.”

Populated by archangels, limping in paradise; by allergies of the soul; the intimacy and danger of motherhood; psychic wounds; and dirty, dirty chocolate layer cake, “What is Otherwise Infinite” deftly examines our inherent and inherited ideas of how to live, and the experience of the Self—which on one hand is so intensely personal, and on the other, universal.

Bianca Stone is a poet and hybrid artist. Her books include “The Mobius Strip Club of Grief “(Tin House, 2018), “Someone Else’s Wedding Vows” (Octopus Books and Tin House, 2014) and most recently “What is Otherwise Infinite” (Tin House, 2022).  She teaches classes on poetry and consciousness in Vermont. bianca-stone.com/ Twitter: @biancastone Instagram: @biancastone
