Coming this Sunday, my reading/book signing event at Trident Booksellers & Cafe, in Boulder, Colorado. This is a Free event.
From Trident Booksellers:
Award winning Colorado Poet and Musician Bruce Arlen Wasserman will be reading from his newly released book, THE BROKEN NIGHT.
“In The Broken Night Bruce Wasserman performs the poet’s task of breaking bread with the dead,” says Betsy Sholl, author of House of Sparrows and Rough Cradle. “In the book’s elegant long poem… Wasserman uses rich musical pacing to weave in different historical contexts, and thus creates for us a poem that is complex, beautiful and heartbreaking, as is this entire book. It celebrates and grieves, and makes space for the reader to experience mystery and awe.” Bruce is an accomplished musician (bass, guitar, harmonica) and the brother of famed bassist Rob Wasserman of Rat Dog, so it is not surprising that Bruce’s writing reflects an inherence sense of musicality.
He received an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts and is a literary critic for the New York Journal of Books. He has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, was a semi-finalist for the Francine Ringold Awards for New Writers, a semi-finalist for the Proverse Prize and won the Anna Davidson Rosenberg 2019 Poetry Award. Bruce’s writing has been published in the Proverse Poetry Prize Anthology, The Fredericksburg Literary and Art Review, The River Heron Review, Kindred Literary Magazine, the Broad River Review, Cathexis Northwest Press, High Shelf Literary Magazine, Wild Roof Journal and the Washington Independent Review of Books.
Bruce will be available to sign copies of his book after the reading. You can follow his blog at http://www.brucearlenwasserman.com.
