Kelly Lenox - The Brightest Rock: Poems Durham's own Kelly Lenox comes to The Regulator for a reading and book signing in celebration of the launch of her new book of poetry, The Brightest Rock. Lenox's debut collection finds resonance within the natural world for a life undergoing a tectonic shift. Her poems face the void without flinching, and without losing hope. “Kelly Lenox’s brave, beautiful book is full of wonders—a heart made of soapstone, a bungee cord freefall, hope itself outfitted with talons. What a rare and lovely thing to dive deeper into the mysterious essence of a woman’s being in poem after poem …The Brightest Rock is a splendor itself, deserving front and center standing on anyone’s bookshelf.” — Robert Vivian, author of Mystery My Country Kelly Lenox is inspired by the workings and mystery of the natural world. She is the editor-in-chief of the Environmental Factor, for the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, part of National Institutes of Health. She earned her MFA at the Vermont College of Fine Arts and her BA in environmental science at the University of Virginia. She worked at Powell’s Bookstore in Portland, has edited literary journals, including Hunger Mountain and Rain City Review and taught as a poet in the schools in Portland, Oregon, where she lived until 2011. Lenox was nominated for the Pushcart Prize in 2015 and has won several regional awards for her poetry. Kelly Lenox's poetry collection, The Brightest Rock, was designed by Dave Wofford of Horse and Buggy Press in Durham. Event date: 05/18/2017 - 7:00pm
