Christina Pacosz is a gutsy, passionate, utterly frank Polish-American poet. The first time I read her work, I felt as if I were reading Kerouac, if he were a Bohunk woman.
In 2012, Seven Kitchens Press will be publishing "How to Measure the Darkness," a new book by Christina Pacosz, and you should buy it, read it, review it on Amazon, and share it with your friends.
More information on "How to Measure the Darkness" here.
A previous blog post about Christina's work on the Missouri Leadbelt Riot, that drove Poles out of the lead mining region of Missouri, can be found here.
The Amazon page for Christina's book "This Is Not a Place to Sing" can be found here.
Below please find a video of Christina reading about her 1986 visit to the Jagiellonian University to study Polish-Jewish relations, about mak, or poppy seed, about women, about women's worth, and about women and aging.
