Digigram by Barbara Henning


Barbara Henning’s new book of poems, Digigram, chronicles a dreary year, the abominable 2016, yet it is full of insights by an aware observer who takes the time to look. These poems are so good, they make the ordinary day to day extraordinary.

In the Vimeo below, at her home across from Prospect Park, Barbara settled down to read from Digigram. We were both doing other things and running around, but I’m glad we got it done because these poems offer optimism to the reader and listener; in the middle of creation is the will to go on. Enjoy.
