By Steve Furay
Special to the Michigan Citizen
Poet, publisher and educator jessica Care moore has recently released a new book of poetry, “Sunlight Through Bullet Holes,” and will be making two upcoming public appearances in Detroit in June to perform and promote her book.
Moore describes her new work, influenced by the daily struggle of Detroiters to live and love amidst the harsh conditions of the city, as her strongest collection of poems to date.
For 20 years, the native Detroiter has traveled across the U.S. and overseas, reading poetry and delivering lectures on art and community development, building her reputation as one of her generation’s preeminent poetic voices.
On June 20 at 8:30 p.m., at the N’Namdi Center for Contemporary Art, 52 E. Forest, Detroit, moore will perform with the Ann Arbor’s Donald Sinta Saxophone Quartet and PUBLIQuartet from New York. Tickets are $20.
On June 27 at 8 p.m., The Collective, at 8325 Jefferson, Detroit, will host “A Night of Duets” with moore and live musical guests, hosted by Piper Carter.
“Sunlight Through Bullet Holes,” moore’s fourth book release on Moore Black Press, her independently owned publishing company, is the follow up to her 2009 book, “God Is Not An American.” Books are currently available for purchase online at www.jessicacaremoore.com and will be available at both appearances.
