Poet to read at local bookstore

Local poet Julia Levine will read from her new book of poetry, “Small Disasters Seen in Sunlight,” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 15, at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St.

In “Small Disasters Seen in Sunlight,” her fourth collection, Levine tackles wide-ranging subjects, including poems about a friend’s suicide and the poet’s own interactions with traumatized children, as well as a series of revision poems that question the imagination’s infinite possibilities for creation.

In “Strolling in Late April,” a woman with dementia wanders in a park filled with springtime beauty, while in “Tahoe Wetlands,” the speaker recalls a rape at gunpoint through the merciful distance of time.

Levine received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from UC Berkeley, and works and lives in Davis.
