I was fortunate enough to attend a poetry reading at UCCS last night in honor of International Women’s Day. The presenting poet was Margaret Randall. Prior to the event, I had never heard of her. Her poetry is very powerful, full of myth and strong images of the desert. She tackles issues like immigration, male right, cultural dominance and rape. I’m not going to go on, you can pick up one of her books if you’d like to read her for yourself. She also has tour information on her website.
