Please come to the inaugural reading from the new poetry collection Unfinished Child, the first book by Lindsey Warren!  This work is a meditation on grief and moves in and out of memory in an emotionally evocative way. Poet Marvin Bell said of this book, "It will challenge and delight you."

 The poems of the late Cornell alumna Ann Silsbee and the unpublished memoirs of long-time Ithaca local David Borden (read by himself) will be featured alongside NYC-based pianist Adam Tendler's twice published memoirs and autobiographical musings. This reading is the culminating event for Ithaca Sounding 2020, a festival celebrating music by Ithacan composers running from Jan. 30-Feb. 2. Coordinated by Richard Valitutto, a graduate student in Cornell's music department, this festival celebrates, explores, and questions the traditions of (mostly) keyboard concert music by Ithacans past and present, featuring works by Julius Eastman, Sarah Hennies, Robert Palmer, Ann Silsbee, and David Borden. Connecting and mediating the themes of music in the academy, marginalized art, improvisational performance practice, and queer experimentalism, this interdisciplinary series of events probes the creative and personal histories of some of Ithaca’s most renowned musical personae with concerts, shows, talks, and panel discussions.
