Two sister-poets, one from Chicago and one from California, perform selections from their new collections of poetry on Sunday, March 8. Each has won awards — Gay, most recently from Poets & Patrons; Anara, both a John Crowe Ransom and a Jack Kerouac prize. As “Sibling Revelry,” they bring laughter to pathos, empathy to childhood memories, sweetness to sorrow… Please join us for this free event at 4:00 at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Sacramento, 2425 Sierra Boulevard. Plenty of parking available.

Gay Guard-Chamberlin’s Red Thread Through a Rusty Needle explores the natural world and the collapse of eco-systems, mothers and daughters, aging, the inner life of words, and the secret lives of ordinary objects. Anara Guard’s Hand on My Heart plumbs the depths of memory and imagination, regrets, childbirth and parenting, floods and heat waves, the flight of owls, and certain love.
