CHRISTOPHER J. JARMICK is well known throughout Western Washington as a tireless organizer and host of poetry readings, events, and festivals. He’d like you to know the last Take a Poem From Your Heart second Wednesday poetry reading happens December 9th at Park Place Books in Kirkland which is closing after more than 20 years of being one of the best and biggest new and used bookstores on the Eastside. He hopes lots of people will give the store and 9 year reading series a fond farewell (6:30 to 9 p.m. December 9) Details on the PoetryIsEverything blog forthcoming.
Not Aloud the brand new poetry collection published September 2015 by MoonPath Press presents ‘some 30 plus years of Christopher J. Jarmick’s marvelous poetry,’ writes editor/publisher (and poet) Lana Hechtman Ayers. “Jarmick’s thematic territory is expansive—family, relationships, the art of writing, philosophy, his patented poem starters, and much, much more. His language is musical, approachable, and memorable. His refreshing turns of phrases stand clichés on their heads: “The clouds/are not metaphors at all./They hide the sky,/they get fat,/sometimes they burst,/but not with tears,/Mr. Tambourine Man,/just with rain.” Full of humor, acute observation, and deep emotion, Not Aloud is a collection you’ll want to return to again and again.”
