Carol L. Gloor and Susanna Lang of the Egg Money Poets Collective

An Evening of Poetry  

Carol L. Gloor

Assisted Living

Susanna Lang

Tracing the Lines 

Gloor's chapbook Assisted Living was awarded Finishing Line Press's Starting Gate Prize for outstanding first book and has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. In this collection, memories of a mother and father intersect and collide, break and melt. A testament to the bonds of family,Assisted Living should be required reading for anyone with parents at or nearing the end of their lives, "fluttering toward death." Carol L. Gloor is a semi-retired attorney in western Illinois who has been writing (mostly poetry) for forty years. 

  

In Tracing the Lines, Lang mines the personal and historical geographies of a global citizenry, our collective missteps, and buried laughter. Lang observes the tenuous ritual of living and our struggle to make sense of it all somehow. Lang is the author of two previously published poetry collections, Even Now and Two by Two. She lives with her husband and son in Chicago, where she is a literacy coach in the Chicago Public Schools and offers poetry workshops in public libraries.

Egg Money Poets is a Chicago-area poetry collective.
