Syrian Author Osama Alomar Book Launch @ St. Johnsbury Athenaeum
Jun 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Come celebrate the launch of Syrian author in exile Osama Alomar’s new collection The Teeth of the Comb and Other Stories (New Directions 2017).

Alomar will read from his work and sign copies of his new book with his translator, Athenaeum librarian Christian Collins.

“There are no wasted words in Alomar’s beautiful collection: philosophical and subversive, these tiny parables deliver the kind of stunning maxims that convey a plea for progress and improvement. Alomar’s writing brims with hope, and this slim volume is full of compassion and depth.” – Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Art-Illness-Beauty: A Panel Discussion @ St. Johnsbury Athenaeum
Jun 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join artist Alexis Kyriak, and friends Father John Sherman, yogi and
special educator Noni Record, and therapist and artist Helene Amses, in a discussion on creativity, mental illness, spirituality, beauty and the search for meaning in a difficult world.

The purpose of life is healing, and taking our origins to a new place, beyond what we’ve begun with.

All the stuff, the physical manifestation and works, completed in the Interim between our first day and our maturation, have documented the struggle.
— Alexis Kyriak

Readings in the Gallery: Adrienne Raphael @ Adrienne Raphel
Jul 12 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Raised in St. Johnsbury, Vermont, Raphel is currently a PhD student at Harvard, where she’s working on a book about crossword puzzles. Raphel’s debut full-length poetry collection, What Was It For, was published in 2017 by Rescue Press. (http://www.rescuepress.co/shop/what-was-it-for). Here is the publisher’s description of the book, “In her debut collection What Was It For, Adrienne Raphel revitalizes the topsy-turvy lyric and its evergreen sagacity. Through playground doggerel, charm, and riddle, these poems cry fair and foul to a world where pâté geese dabble in fields of lavender, crises get wallpapered over, hot air balloons stalk pleasurably, cash changes for gold, and the moon sinks into the sea to the thrum of the metronome. That world is this, our own and only, so reader, climb aboard: like a carousel, each poem loops round and round, granting dizzying vistas. All the while, these poems spill over with wonder—as in query, as in jubilee—just as a child chants why, but why, but why. By way of answer, What Was It For offers an immortal, resounding question. “Poet Cathy Park Hong selected it as the winner of the Black Box Poetry Prize.
