The Santa Fe Community College Library presents Start Again: A Reading by Miriam Sagan, via Zoom, Tuesday, February 1, 2022, 6 p.m. The poems in Miriam Sagan’s newest book of poetry, Start Again, come from the poet’s experiences and ruminations during the COVID-19 pandemic in Santa Fe. As in her previous work, Sagan dips into elements of myth and mysticism, working in symbols of the tarot, astrology, nature, history, and Judaism, to create a poetic cosmology all her own. Some poems explore the traditional New Mexico landscapes— sacred places turned iconic, the indigenous and migrated populations jarring up against the history and trauma of conquest and Anglo invasion. Heavy in the history, the poet likewise captures the present pandemic moments, the underlying sense of dread and unknowing the pandemic spurred. Attendees must register and can do so, here.
