Poet Eileen Malone @ Florey's Books

Florey's Books invites you to read local poet Eileen Malone's new book I Should Have Given Them Water, a challenging new collection of poetry. With an unflinching generosity of lush imagery, Malone turns nouns into verbs and verbs into nouns with carefully honed incongruity. She navigates the abstract, messy, expressionistic, and humanistic, while maintaining tough, straightforward intensity. These poems are packed with powerful, penetrating struggles by a well-seasoned feminist (mental health activist), feminine (wife, mother, daughter) poet with an amazing capability for risking, loving, and suspecting her world, all at the same time.

About the author: Eileen Malone lives in Broadmoor Village. More than 500 of her poems have been published in literary journals and anthologies, many earning awards and citations, and recently two were nominated for Pushcart prizes. Her book on writers groups was published by Wiley and her award-winning chapbook Letters with Taloned Claws was published by Poet’s Corner Press. She founded and directs the Soul-Making Literary Competition; is a voting member for the Northern California Book Reviewers Association; is a branch officer for the National League of American Pen Women; an activist for the National Alliance on Mental Illness; and serves on the Advisory Committee for Caminar (support services for people with disabilities). She also hosts/produces a television interview show on creativity, now streaming on the Internet. Look for an article about her in the July 14 PACIFICA TRIBUNE
