St Mark's Bookstore: A Reading by James Dennis
June 3, 2021 6:00pm
Join us in our sanctuary for a reading by James Dennis, San Antonio poet and friend of St. Mark's Bookstore. James has a new volume of poetry coming soon. Listening Devices from Stephen Austin Press is James' second book of poetry.
This collection explores the nature of language, love and loss, our history, and the simple joy of being alive. It is organized into four sections, or quartets, each based on a piece of music that sets the mood for the poems in that section. Texas poet laureate Carol Coffee Reposa says of Listening Devices: "a near Renaissance breadth of vision ... Dennis is a poetic wizard."
James R. Dennis, OP is a poet, a novelist, and a Dominican friar. He also writes and teaches on spiritual matters. He lives in San Antonio with two ill-behaved dogs.
