Event Navigation

Please join Green Apple Books on Clement street Thursday, March 23rd at 7:00pm as we welcome Author Kendra Tanacea, reading from and discussing her book of poetry A Filament Burns in Blue.

A Filament Burns in Blue Degrees explores life’s strains and joys and the human compulsion to create something lasting despite certain entropy. Teardowns, remodels, sex, longing, joy; sometimes tender, sometimes humorous, these poems explore interpersonal relationships of all kinds and embrace the competing impulses of working hard at changing life’s course and fatalistic acceptance. Kendra’s poems keep the light on in the darkest of places: “Come after midnight, your hand / on the door, and me, lit, humming.”

KENDRA TANACEA, an attorney in San Francisco, holds a BA in English from Wellesley College and an MFA in writing and literature from Bennington College. A Filament Burns in Blue Degrees was a semifinalist for the Washington Prize and a finalist for the Idaho Prize for Poetry. Kendra’s poems have appeared in 5AM, Rattle, Moon City Review, The Coachella Review, Stickman Review, and Juked, among others. Visit Kendra Tanacea online here.
