Monday, October 15, 6:30 p.m. – Cathryn Cofell and Karla Huston
What comes of one bag of licorice, four cups of coffee, radio-free Iowa and six hours of nothing but rural route road-tripping? Meet Thigh. This feisty female’s got a love-sick heart, a lumpy bod and an evil twin she can’t shake. In Split Personality, a new release by Sunnyoutside Press, award-winning poets Cathryn Cofell and Karla Huston blend their voices into one glorious, giggly and sometimes jiggly exploration of the trappings that often define and defy today’s woman.
Cathryn Cofell and Karla Huston have been collaborators since 2000, with poems in Rhino, Indiana Review, and Quiddity, among others. The duo has been anthologized in Saints of Hysteria and exercised in Wingbeats: Exercises & Practice in Poetry and in many workshop settings. Between them, they have published twelve books of poems, two broadsides, one music/poetry cd, and oodles of reviews, interviews and essays. They’ve won many writing awards and received a boatload of Pushcart nominations including one win for Karla for “Theory of Lipstick,” the title poem for her forthcoming collection from Main Street Rag.
