Spirit Lake Poetry Series


On Saturday, March 25, five Duluth poets will read from their collaborative collection “The Moon Rolls Out of Our Mouths” at the College of St. Scholastica in an event sponsored by the Spirit Lake Poetry Series.

Meeting in local restaurants, Deborah Cooper, Candace Ginsberg, Ann Floreen Neidringhaus, Ellie Schoenfeld, and Anne Simpson critiqued each other’s writing over a period of years. “We always left with our work covered with notes of emphatic and often completely contradictory suggestions,” says Schoenfeld. “Our work, separate strands, became intertwined. We learned and borrowed from each other.” Their collection was published last fall by Calyx Press of Duluth.

Cooper, Neidringhaus, and Schoenfeld had appeared in many magazines and published individual books before blending their voices in “The Moon Rolls Out of Our Mouths.” Simpson had co-authored a book on Alzheimer’s Disease. Ginsberg found print for the first time in the joint collection.

The five poets will read in Somers Lounge on the campus of St. Scholastica at 7:30 p.m. Complementary music will be provided. Refreshments will be served.
Admission is free. A booksigning will follow the reading.

Funding is provided by grants from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council; the College of St. Scholastica; Northern Lights Books and Gifts; and the Lee and Rose Warner Foundation.
