Amy Nawrocki returns to Byrd’s Books! Saturday March 1st at 7:00 p.m.

Some of you may remember Amy when she joined us for our “History of Connecticut Food” and “History of Connecticut Wine” slide show and food/wine event. Well, we heard Amy was coming out with a new poetry book and we wanted her to come to Byrd’s Books to share it with you!! We love Amy’s poetry, and we know you will too.

Advance praise for Amy’s book:


From poet Leslie McGrath:

Amy Nawrocki’s poems celebrate preservation and renewal in New England landscapes. Births, deaths, and the whimsical appearance of the mysterious—all are welcomed as the poet invites us to “light the light that will unblind us.” Nawrocki is a deft observer of the beauty of work, be it pickling or pulling a quahog from the muck. The weathered and the wasting, too, are treated with wonder by this poet who describes a bygone farm in which pumpkins in a field are “sitting like children watching a magic show.”
