Poet Cate Marvin says of the book: “Like the ‘finny miscreants’ conjured in the title poem of her brilliant debut, THE MIMIC SEA, Erica Bernheim schools us in new ways of feeling. While its poems court neither mimicry nor parody, this writer knows its subjects well enough to gently prod them from time to time, all in good fun, with the tip of her knife. Thankfully shorn of poise, the manner in which the speaker approaches the page is nothing short of onslaught.”
The event is free and open to the public. There will be a small reception and book signing following the reading.
