Ron Koertge & Kim Dower discuss & sign The Ogre's Wife and Slice of Moon

In Koertge's new poetry collection, seminal figures from pop mythology speak up in unexpected ways:   He meets Walt Whitman on the set of an X-rated movie,  the ogre's wife from the beanstalk yarn writes a heart-rending story on her cutting board, and a group of fourth-graders on a field trip encounters Death.


Slice of Moon, the second poetry collection by Kim Dower, retains the whimsical, accessible style of her debut, Air Kissing on Mars, while reaching deeper, with greater lyrical intensity, irony, and poignancy. Losing one's mother in Bloomingdale's, the pleasures of corned beef, the power of bottled water, fear of freeways, hot springs, secrets in hotel rooms, wolves in garter belts, the strange lights next door, the people in the health food store who don't look healthy; Slice of Moon is simultaneously funny and profound, universal and personal.
