Friday April 6: 7:30PM – 8:30PM
"The Witch Doesn't Burn In This One" by Amanda Lovelace:
"Pillow Thoughts" by Courtney Peppernell
Amanda Lovelace celebrated her author debut in 2016 with her book the princess saves herself in this one; now she's back with her sequel the witch doesn't burn in this one!
This new work tells the tale of the witch: strong, solitary, and now—indestructible. These powerful, relatable poems encourage resilience and fortify women to take control of their own stories. Enemies try to judge, oppress, and marginalize her, but the witch doesn’t burn in this one.
Amanda will be commemorating her new work with fellow poet Courtney Peppernell. Join us in the Second Floor Art Department for this poetic gathering!
