Poet Alexandra Teague
reads poems of a curious and
twisted American trajectory

Annie_Oakley_by_Baker's_Art_Gallery_c1880s-cropAlexandra returns to present her new collection of poems. ¬†She’s an award winning poet, late of the Bay Area (she was a Stegner fellow here from 2006-2008 and a 2011 NEA fellow), now teaching at the University of Idaho. Her new collection is said to be “a chilling exploration of American progress and its consequences, featuring Sarah Winchester (the rifle heiress) and her unsettling Mysterious House, with cameos by Houdini, Annie Oakley, Oliver Winchester, Calamity Jane, Buffalo Bill and others.”
