Zeit: Locally sourced lit

bookValley poets get their due — a big 280 pages of it — in the recently released Clark: Poetry From Clark County, Nevada (Zeitgeist Press). Sampling the best work of some 105 poets, the anthology casts a wide net, gathering in poets you might’ve heard of, from Bruce Isaacson to Angela M. Brommel to Lee Mallory, to many you haven’t: slam poets, academic poets, free-versers, even talented high-schoolers. Curious? There will be readings July 1 at Barnes & Noble in Henderson, July 15 at the Writer’s Block and July 29 at the West Charleston Library. Visit poetrypromise.org for more details.
