      Neuron Mirror   Poems by Virginia Walker and Michael Walsh

      Tuesday, October 21, 2014, Hunt Room, Fortunoff Hall, 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM

      Professor Virginia Walker, of the English Department, and fellow poet, Michael Walsh, will read from their new book, Neuron Mirror.

      The event will begin at 11:30 A.M., and will include a reading, a question and answer session with the poets, a workshop (time permitting), and refreshments.  The event will conclude by 1:30 P.M.

      All proceeds from Neuron Mirror will go to research on preventing and treating pancreatic cancer. The book will be available for purchase at twenty dollars and the poets will sign the books.

      This book is dedicated to the memory of Helen Shields, Diana Chang, Siv Cedering, Robert Long, and Antje Katcher, great humans, wonderful poets, and inspiring artists.

      But they were all victims of pancreatic cancer.

      This new book has already received raves from poets and critics:

      “a liberal education in things that matter,” Philip Appleman

      “knowledgeable and compassionate force to Virginia Walker’s poems,” Ann Hammond

      “highly original, emotionally rewarding poetry,” Simon Perchik

      Open to all members of the Dowling Community.
