AS CLEAN AS A BONE Book Launch — Emmett Wheatfall
October 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Emmett Wheatfall’s As Clean as a Bone is a collection of poems for both the heart and the mind, a collection seasoned with the vital and invigorating salt of poetry and wisdom. Through clean, crafted lines that ring out, these remarkable poems question history, memory, culture. These poems don’t just talk: they wrestle with experience, they debate, they think and play, they sing out with love and pain. “Can we sing a new song?” Emmett Wheatfall asks. With their deft musical cadences and resonant depths, the poems in this new book answer back with a resounding YES.
Emmett Wheatfall lives in Portland, Oregon where he reads, writes, publishes and performs poetry. He has published six books of poetry. They are He Sees Things (2010), We Think We Know (2011), The Meaning of Me (2012), Bread Widow (2013, and his first hardback collection titled Fragments (2015). He published his sixth collection titled As Clean as a Bone in May 2018 through Fernwood Press, an imprint of Barclay Press.
