Haven Kimmel | St. Matthew's Episcopal Church | Page: Readings & Signings | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Sun., April 22, 3 p.m. 2018
Price: free

To celebrate National Poetry Month, as part of its Faith and Arts series, St. Matthews Episcopal Church selected local favorite Haven Kimmel. That makes sense in a lot of ways: Kimmel's varied output for adults and kids comes from a background that includes attending seminary as well as studying literature; she's someone who has called "every minute of every day ... a metaphor of God." But in another way, it's a surprising choice, as Kimmel is better known for best-selling memoirs (A Girl Named Zippy: Growing up Small in Mooreland, Indiana) and novels (The Solace of Leaving Early) about small-town life than she is for verse. Still, in many interviews, she has discussed poetry being her first love, so it should be interesting to hear what she has in store. —Zack Smith
