Tuesday, October 6, 2015 @ 7:00 pm
Lynette Reini-Grandell is the author of Approaching the Gate (Holy Cow! Press, 2014), which won the 2015 Northeastern Minnesota book Award for Poetry. Her poem “Radio Girls” appears in the anthology It’s Animal but Merciful and was nominated for a 2012 Pushcart Prize. Other work has appeared in The Understanding between Foxes and Light, MNArtists.org, Poetry Motel, and Evergreen Chronicles, among others. She has received grants for her work from the Finlandia Foundation (2013) and the Minnesota State Arts Board (2011). Based in Minneapolis, she performs regularly with the Bosso Poetry Company.
Lynette Reini-Grandell’s joyful debut is full of poems that celebrate — and wink at — the wildness of this world….Reini-Grandell’s first book announces a formidable and unique talent. She pulls readers into her ecstatic writing, asking them to join as she cries her “greedy hallelujah.”
