Los Angeles poet Carol V. Davis completed her latest book while a resident at Surel's Place last year. She is coming back to celebrate it's publication with a special reading as part of Surel's Place Poetry Series. In her new poetry collection, Davis crosses cultural and geographic boundaries to explore her family's history as Jews, as outsiders, as immigrants. Ranging from Los Angeles to Nebraska to Germany to Russia, she probes the boundaries between faith, folklore and superstition, trying to find her own way through terrain both menacing and inviting.
