Zoom Book Reading 


Marianne Szlyk and Ethan Goffman will be reading from our new books, Why I Never Visited the Elms and Realities and Alternatives, on Saturday, January 14 at 1 PM




Marianne Szlyk is the author of On the Other Side of the Window (Pski's Porch, 2018) and Poetry en Plein Air (Pony One Dog Press, 2020) and the chapbook Why We Never Visited the Elms (Poetry Pacific Press, 2022). Her poems have appeared in numerous online and print journals. She is a professor of English and Reading at Montgomery College, where she and her husband lead It Takes a Community, an intergenerational poetry group for students and community members. Even when she is on grading retreat, Marianne likes to do yoga and go for walks, often through Maryvale Park, the setting of many of her poems.  She hopes to see the wary turtle again and do more exploring once the weather is warmer.
