Katha Pollitt at Gulf of Maine Books

We are very pleased to invite you to an afternoon event with Katha Pollitt at Gulf of Maine Books on Saturday, January 12, at 230 PM.
Katha Pollitt is a poet, essayist, and columnist for The Nation. Her latest book is Learning to Drive and Other Life Stories. Previous books include Virginity or Death and Other Social and Political Issues of Our Time, Reasonable Creatures: Essays on Women and Feminism, and Subject to Debate: Sense and Dissents on Women, Politics and Culture.
Her book of poems Antarctic Traveller seems to be out of print (and why, Random House?) but she does have a new collection of poems, The Mind-Body Problem and Other Poems, due out in March, and perhaps she will read us some new poems.
We hope that you will attend this free event, and enjoy this special afternoon with Katha Pollitt.
For more information please call the bookstore at 729-5083.
