Bill Glose “Child of the Movies” Book Launch & Reading
Bill Glose’s latest book, “Child of the Movies,” is a love letter of sorts, filled with poems that reflect on and celebrate his personal experiences with movies. It also uses the medium of film as a lens for looking at the world. At times whimsical and others solemn, Child of the Movies blends well-known actors, titles, and themes into the concerns of everyday life and our happily-ever-after hopes.
Join us for a night of cinematic wonder. Bill Glose will be reading from Child of the Movies. Embracing its silver-screened-theme, the reading will include popcorn and an accompanying slideshow.
Bill Glose is a combat veteran, a former paratrooper, and a long-time lover of the silver screen. Now a civilian, he undertakes intriguing pursuits—such as walking across Virginia and participating in a world-record-setting skinny dip—to write about for magazines. The author of four poetry collections, Glose was named the Daily Press Poet Laureate in 2011 and featured by NPR on The Writer’s Almanac in 2017. His poems have appeared in numerous journals, including The Missouri Review, Rattle, Poet Lore, Narrative Magazine, and The Sun. When he’s not writing articles for magazines or poetry for himself, he’s probably kicked back in his La-Z-Boy watching one of his hundreds of movies on DVD.
