    Join Distinguished Professor of English at the University of Utah, Katherine Coles, will discuss her new collection of poetry, The Stranger I Become. She will be in conversation with fellow poet, Kathryn Cowles, author of Maps and Transcripts of the Ordinary World.This free, virtual event will take place on Crowdcast and you must register here to participate. Buy your book of The Stranger I Become from The King's English Bookshop and receive an autographed copy.The Stranger I Become probes the permeable boundary between inner life and outer, thought and action, science and experience. Poet Katharine Coles begins her lyric essays with a meditation on “the urge to move beyond, to understand myself as a stranger, estranged.” The essays travel, always on foot, from Coles’s home with its kept and wild birds, into the canyon her home overlooks, itself populated with creatures ranging from voles to owls, moose, bobcats, and coyotes. From there, always looking, always walking, in the company of the words that move her, they traverse her neighborhood and distant places in this country and the world. All along, they consider the poetry that inhabits her: the winged creatures of Dickinson, Ashbery’s “reflections,” Keats’s “irritable reaching,” Anne Carson’s ever-unreachable appleas and more.
