Joan Hewitt’s debut poetry collection, Missing the Eclipse, from Cinnamon Press, will be launched at this reading. "The poems in Missing the Eclipse unfold like short stories told by moonlight. Their subjects are the enduring puzzle of family, love and identity, set against seaside and city, Europe, near and far. The recurring motif of the camera serves as reflexive eye, filter and captor, framing these ongoing moments that are evoked in language that is both sturdy and spare, unflinching." - Linda France.
