Join us with Brink literary journal founder Nina Lohman, who will read from her lyrical new work of nonfiction, The Body Alone, published by University of Iowa Press! "This book is a searching inventory of a life altered by pain, punctuated with forays into history, etymology, theology, and poetics. It's a stubborn, tender record of the unrecordable, a brave attempt to describe something that cannot ever be truly communicated. A beautiful howl of a book." —Jordan Kisner
