The Regulator Bookshop welcomes Robin Kirk, Andrea Selch, and Jennie Malboeuf for a reading and signing of Nasty Women Poets: An Unapologetic Anthology of Subversive Verse.
This timely collection of poems speaks not just to the current political climate and the man who is responsible for its title, but to the stereotypes and expectations women have faced dating back to Eve, and to the long history of women resisting those limitations. The nasty women poets included here sing, swear, swagger, and celebrate, and stake claim to life and art on their own terms.
Robin Kirk is the author of several books, including Peculiar Motion, a poetry chapbook (Finishing Line Press). She teaches human rights at Duke University and never grades on a curve.
Jennie Malboeuf is a Kentucky native and a good witch. She has published her poetry widely, including in Best New Poets 2016 (Meridian and Samovar Press). She teaches writing at Guilford College.
Andrea Selch is the author of the safer-sex poetry series "Twentieth-Century Valentines" (Oyster Boy Review) along with two other full-length poetry books. She has published her poetry widely. She lives in Hillsborough with her wife and two children.
