The Capitol Hill Reading Series
This Tuesday!
Holly Karapetkova Reading
Tuesday, Feb. 15th 2011 @ 7PM at Riverby Books
The 2010 WWPH poetry contest winner, Holly Karapetkova, author of Words We Might One Day Say. Her book explores subjects of love and loss, marriage and domesticity, parenting and motherhood. The pieces range in style and form from prose poems to sonnets, moving through a variety of voices and experiences. Many of the poems are inspired by folklore and myth, and many deal with the interaction between two cultures: the author’s own American culture and her adopted Bulgarian culture. The first poem in the collection, a prose poem entitled “The Woman Who Wanted a Child,” introduces the book’s themes by asking questions about the limits of motherhood, taking its cue from the mythological experience of metamorphosis.

Holly Karapetkova’s poetry, prose, and translations from the Bulgarian have appeared in a number of journals and anthologies, including Crab Orchard Review, New Madrid, Mid-American Review, River Styx, 150 Contemporary Sonnets, and the International Poetry Anthology(Slovenia). She is the author of over twenty books and graphic stories for children and young adults, including Goodbye Friends! and Knock! Knock! She also serves as artist in residence and literary advisor for the Rhodope International Theatre Laboratory in Smolyan, Bulgaria, where she teaches, writes, and performs poetry for the stage. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of Cincinnati and an M.F.A. from Georgia State University. She is an Assistant Professor of English at Marymount University and lives in Arlington, Virginia.
