Author Events

Essex Books, 104 Main Street, Ivoryton, CT , 06442

Poets David K. Leff and Amy Nawrocki will read from their work Sunday, June 15 at Essex Books. David's latest book Finding the Last Hungry Heart brings us into a world where the past is present and stories matter. Teens climb a landfill fence, the 1960s come alive, and a disillusioned refugee from those turbulent years rediscovers himself. In Amy's most recent poetry collection Four Blue Eggs, her poems propose that though “we earn the favor of being by breaking,” the pieces are salvageable; bruises heal from the inside through the universe’s infinite surrogacy. Join us for a Father's Day treat in the historic and beautiful village of Ivoryton. The bookstore is located in Gather, a unique antique and gift shop. Essex Books is at 104 Main Street, Ivoryton, CT. 860-767-1707
