Lou Suarez Comes to Sandusky Coffeehouse
Lou Suarez will be reading from his new book Traveler at the Sandusky Coffeehouse Readings this Saturday at 2:00. Lou is a longtime supporter of writing in our region, and he always shares himself along with his poems. Join us if you can.
Lou Suarez is the author of two book-length collections of poetry, Ask (2004) and the
new Traveler (2010), both published by Mid-List Press, also three poetry chapbooks,
Losses of Moment (Kent State University Press, 1995), The Grape Painter, (Frost Heaves
Press, 2001), and On U.S. 6 to Providence ((Red Mountain Review, 2006).
He is currently professor emeritus at Lorain County Community College, and lives in Sheffield
Lake, Ohio, with his wife. He is a member of the Lorain Poets. On Traveler: “Again and again the sharp-eyed poems of Lou Suarez see through the still surfaces of the ordinary to reveal the turbulence and mystery of our own lives. In a collection that is by turns sexy, elegiac, and celebratory, Suarez shows us that the world—the American world in particular—
is stranger, larger, and lovelier than we knew. Isn’t this why we read poetry?” — George Bilgere
The poet doesn't invent. He listens. ~Jean Cocteau
