Coffee With The Authors: Jennifer Sperry Steinorth

Coffee With The Authors is a live, conversational interview with local and regional authors about the craft and process of writing. On August 18 Traverse City poet and teacher Jennifer Sperry Steinorth discusses Her Read, a book-length collage poem. In the tradition of reusing canvases, Steinorth appropriates a seminal text, The Meaning of Art by Herbert Read (Faber & Faber, 1931), and with the liberal use of correction fluid, scalpel and embroidery floss, erases and transforms the book from art criticism into feminist verse. Sarah Bearup-Neal, GAAC gallery manager, leads the conversation. The interview begins at 1 pm. Steinorth is the author of three published books of poetry, numerous broadsides, handmade books and more. She is a lecturer at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and a 2023-2024 Beinecke Fellow at Yale where she is at work on a biography of American poet, C.D. Wright. This Coffee With The Authors interview is part of the GAAC’s Shrines + Altars project, an exploration of what, where, and how we direct our worshipful attention – secular, non-secular, sacred, and profane. Coffee With The Authors is offered without charge. The program is supported by the Cottage Book Shop and the Glen Lake Community Library. The GAAC is located at 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.
