Carol Guerrero-Murphy Book Launch

Join author Carol Guerrero-Murphy for a book launch on Sunday, December 8th at 3pm for her newest book of poetry Chained Dog Dreams.

About the Book: Chained Dog Dreams from Finishing Line Press, November 2019, Carol Guerrero-Murphy’s second book of poetry, traverses landscapes both autobiographical and surreal. In these accessible and highly accomplished poems, everything is animate and in conversation with the author, from mastodon bones to childhood. The poems move with ease among memory and dream, while the boundaries between the speaker and everything else are fluid, often harrowing, always tender.
