Cliff Dwellers Club 200 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago IL 60604-2487
Literary and art scholar-poet Rosina Neginsky presents her new poetry book Longings.
Rosina Neginsky presents her new poetry book Longings at the Cliff Dwellers Club on September 30. The event will start at 5:00 pm and will include a cocktail, Rosina Neginsky’s program, and dinner. The Chicago-based Ukrainian artist, Lyubov Momot, whose work the poet used for the cover of her book, and who inspired some of her poems, will be present at the event.
Longings is a collection of the songs of a soul singing, crying, and laughing about the sun and the moon, reflected in the seemingly still waters of the lake, hiding the never-peaceful water-god and his court.
Longings paints the images of myriads of feelings and thoughts that find their lives in words. These words sketch the invisible world of pain, love, struggle, hope, hate, and all that our life offers us when we hear its voice.
