Scott Lowery will read from his brand-new collection of poems, Mutual Life, which examines everyday life during tumultuous times—specifically, the past 8 years. These poems look for the vital connections that hold us together, even as community and personal ties are strained to the breaking point by pandemic anxiety, climate disasters, and the politics of resentment.

Lowery is a poet, musician and teaching artist who grew up in Minneapolis. His poems appear in numerous print and online journals, and he has been awarded the Julia Darling Memorial Poetry Prize, as well as Pushcart and Best of Net nominations. His second chapbook, Mutual Life (Finishing Line, 2023), documents everyday life during tumultuous times. A 30-year veteran educator, Lowery has presented writing workshops to young poets from grade school through college. He and his wife Connie Blackburn recently moved from rural southeastern Minnesota to Milwaukee, drawn by the inexorable pull of young grandchildren.
