Poets in the Gardens: Claire Wahmanholm, MELTWATER (with Edgar Kunz)

Join The Ivy Bookshop as we transform our gardens into an event space for poetry, with the perfectly-suited celebration of MELTWATER by poet Claire Wahmanholm! In this collection, awe and terror sit side-by-side amidst the realities of this world and bringing a child into it.

On April 12, Claire will read from her work alongside poet Edgar Kunz nestled in a corner of The Ivy's outdoor space, and we invite you to join us for this intimate, lovely evening.

These are the lessons of Meltwater: If we are going to worry, let us also at least wonder. If we are going to be seized by terror, let us also be “seized by the topaz sky and the breeze through it.” A glittering, kinetic testament to vanishing—of biodiversity, of climate stability, of a sense of safety—Meltwater is both vindication and balm.
