Gary Boelhower reads from his new collection NAMING RITES -- joined by Lynette Reini-Grandell

Gary Boelhower's second major collection, Naming Rites: Poems, includes sixty-five poems that explore the ways we are named and branded with multiple identities, a clay vessel molded and imprinted from the inside and the outside by those who know us or think they do; by wounds, worries, stones, and nicknames; by place and absence; by teachers and traitors.

Gary Boelhower has taught ethics, leadership, and spirituality at the undergraduate and graduate levels for thirty years. He is the author of Marrow, Muscle, Flight: Poems, which won the Midwest Book Award for poetry. He is professor of theology and religious studies at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN.

Lynette Reini-Grandell's poetry has received grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Finlandia Foundation. Her work has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and is part of an art installation in room 5D of the Carlton Arms Hotel in Manhattan. In Minneapolis, she reads regularly with the Bosso Poetry Company, a subsidiary of Bosso Enterprises, theoretically based in Big Lever, Wyoming.
