Throwbacks: Selected Poems by James Bobrick November 30 at Gallery X

James Bobrick will read selections from the book and sign copies for guests. Light refreshments will be served.

Spinner Publications invites the public to a party celebrating the release of its newest book, Throwbacks: Selected Poems by James Bobrick. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on November 30 at Gallery X, 169 William Street, New Bedford. 

Bobrick will read selections from the book and sign copies for guests. Light refreshments will be served. 

The poems in Throwbacks explore public and private worlds and their surprising intersections; several are set in the New Bedford area and most have appeared in regional, national and international journals and magazines during the past 15 years. Elegant, witty, sometimes disturbingly direct, they are about sex, love, death, and aging, the forces of the market place and the ambiguities of human relationships. 

According to publisher Joseph D. Thomas, "These are poems everyone can enjoy, but they are sophisticated, not sentimental. Some are dark, others infused with light humor."
