Join us as we celebrate the new essay collection from Jenny Boully. For this event, Jenny will be joined by essayist Piper Daniels and poet Alexis Pope.
Jenny Boully is the author of Betwixt-and-Between, The Body, The Book of Beginnings and Endings, not merely because of the unknown that was stalking toward them, and other books.
