New chapbook from Lisa Rogal + NYC Reading

Lisa Rogal (MFA 2013) has a new chapbook out by Ugly Duckling Presse (where MFA 2014 graduate, Daniel Owen currently works as editor and publicity director) this month! Feed Me Weird Things is described as being "about the importance of the unimportant: the quotidian, the overlooked, the natural world, the pain or beauty of longing, the persistence of uncertainty. With a voice at once irreverent and sincere, the poems enact meaning through attentiveness, ambiguity, and humor."

Karen Weiser writes of the chapbook: "Lisa Rogal’s Feed Me Weird Things is a pleasurable existential crisis. I mean, she asks what is the place of pleasure in the cultural mess we are in, which robs us of (almost) every last bit of possible gratification, or makes pleasure an ominous, dumb thing."

You can read more about the chapbook and buy it from Ugly Duckling Presse.

Lisa will be visiting NYC to give a reading on Thursday October 25th at Greenlight Bookstore (PLG location). You can find more details on UDP or Greenlight Bookstore.
