Poetry Reading: Cindy Lurie, Buried Feet
Join us as we celebrate Poetry Month all throughout April! River Bend is happy to host local poet Cindy Lurie for a reading of her newest work, Buried Feet. This event is free and open to the public.
About the Book:
Buried Feet is a rich mix of haiku and free verse poetry for adult readers. This engaging volume takes mundane, everyday things and elevates them to an inviting read.
“Cindy Lurie weaves her enchanting imageries and language from first poem to last. Her style of stanza poetry along with Haiku poetry, gives the reader a look at her extensive command of alliteration and syntax that works perfectly within the depth of each poem, whether it’s about human nature, or the seemingly mundane, she gave me a rare view on how everything we come into contact with deserves appreciation. This is a most inviting read that I didn’t want to end.” ~ Elizabeth Szewczyk, Fragments of Survival
