Tigertail, A South Florida Poetry Annual: Sunstruck Matches

Book Launch and Reading

Monday, October 28, 2011
Books & Books
265 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables
free admission

Ten years of poetry annuals will be celebrated, honoring the editors of all 10 books. Sunstruck Matches, edited by Jen Karetnick, explores the theme of "pairings." Thirty-two poets and writers with connections to Florida – some acting together as collaborators on single pieces, a few writing in response to each other, and others working solo – contribute poetry, flash fiction and flash creative nonfiction. Each piece explores the idea of what it means to be paired, and the result is a unique and eclectic compilation that is a feast for the senses. The cover image is by Francie Bishop Good.
