Terrian Walling and George Gerard
October 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us at Green Apple Books on Clement street on Sunday, October 7th at 7:00 p.m. to welcome Terrian Walling and George Gerard as they read from their (with Ramazan Saral) collection of collaborative poems and prose, Tegara.
Tegera is a collection of collaborative poems and prose written by three individuals who live on different parts of the planet. As you journey through the book, you will realize that Tegera is not a classical poem book. The reader becomes a traveller and an active participant in the process of timelessness. You have the freedom to follow APEƩ, TaW, or GeoS through the seven realms of Tegera. You can choose to read the book linearly, or to choose your own path through Land, Forest, Shore, Sea, Mountain/Fire, Air/Space, and The Unknown. With complimentary celestial art created by the Turkish artist Yaren Gezer, this book will transport you to where you need to be.
