Bernadette McBride

Event Information

“The poems in Bernadette McBride’s Waiting for the Light to Change examine the whole broad spectrum of a lived life from the quotidian to the sublime, finding the fantastical in a garbage truck and the humbly human in masterpieces by Van Gogh and Sargent, Kahlo and Vermeer. Fully rooted in the ‘desperate garden’ of the world, these poems grow toward and often achieve true beauty.”

– April Lindner, author of This Bed Our Bodies Shaped
