DM Frech Book Launch and Q&A

Join The Muse Writers Center for a reading by DM Frech from her new book, Quiet Tree. After the reading, there will be a Q&A and book signing. This event will be held in person at The Muse and copies of the book will be available for purchase. See the Muse's current Covid-19 policies. For those who are not able to attend in person, there will be a live stream of the event on the Muse Facebook page or you can register to attend live on Zoom.

Quiet Tree leans toward those clearings where even brief lyrics might turn bits of remembered life, loss, and language into the currency of poems.

—Luisa A. Igloria, 20th Poet Laureate of Virginia, Emerita


About the book:

In QUIET TREE, DM Frech’s poems are comrades who share a dark dwelling, with quirky innuendos and retorts to our dilemma of existence. God, often in the mist, with a net to catch our predicaments and keep us from drowning.
