Brazos Bookstore presents Melissa Ginsburg - DEAR WEATHER GHOST, Monday, October 14 at 7pm.Built around an epistolary sequence, "The Weather Ghost Letters," this collection presents images--animals, the elements, landscapes--as vehicles for exploring exile. "A road drifts all over our country," Ginsburg writes, and the speakers of these poems drift, too--spiritually and physically.We experience this unmoored journey through tight, lyrical pieces that use simple, often coy language.Melissa Ginsburg is the author of the poetry collection Dear Weather Ghost, published by Four Way Books, and the chapbook Arbor, from New Michigan Press. Her poems have appeared in Field, Pleiades, Jubilat, Denver Quarterly, and other magazines. She holds a BA in English from the University of Houston and an MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop.Originally from Houston, Texas, Melissa now lives in Oxford, Mississippi. She teaches creative writing at the University of Mississippi and edits the literary magazine Yalobusha Review.
