Poetry at Cherry Street and Open Books: Katy E. Ellis & Sati Mookherjee

(Open Books)
"Cherry Street Coffee & Open Books--two resilient, iconic Pioneer Square businesses-- are joining forces to present local poets Katy E. Ellis and Sati Mookherjee, who will read from their first books. The reading will take place at Cherry Street Coffee, owned and operated by Ali Ghambari, with books for sale (and signing) immediately following the reading next door at Open Books, owned and operated by Billie Swift. 

Ellis’ Home Water, Home Land (Tolsun Books 2022) explores the interior landscape and transitions a young woman must navigate to break away from her family’s patriarchal belief system to find—or become—her own savior. Mookherjee's Eye (Ravenna Press 2022) describes the exile of her grandfather from India to pre-World War II Europe, his interior voyage from grief to insight and the echoes of those journeys in the lives of his descendants. Very different in form, time and setting, these collections harmonize with themes of motherhood, voyage, religion, exile, and longing for home. Together, these books are a perfect pairing as a memorable and moving holiday gift for any reader. 

Come take part in an event that celebrates the power of poetry and independently owned small businesses to create community and human connection!" (Promo Copy)
