POSTPONED - we hope to reschedule this summer. Stay tuned!
Poet LUCAS JACOB reading from his debut collection of poems THE SEED VAULT. The book contains something for every reader: A trio of sonnets encompassing both the 18th-century missions and the 20th-century dance halls of San Antonio; a section-long poem sequence that begins and ends in a prison yard in Stalin’s gulag, and in between travels the world in the company of history’s greatest agricultural botanist; a series of playful interrogations of the rhetoric of the 45th President of the United States. These poems honor the need to find the words for experiences, thoughts, and feelings that exist at, or just beyond, the edge of language. Jacob is a high school teacher and writing-instruction consultant whose career has brought him many wonderful things, including the honor of serving as a Fulbright Fellow in Budapest, Hungary.
