Jenna Cardinale reads from A California


I read with Jenna Cardinale at Pete’s Candy Store in Brooklyn recently. Not only was it great being at a live reading again, but I also enjoyed Jenna’s poetry and asked her then and there if she would read for the blog. So we agreed.

I went over to her place in Brooklyn last week and we recorded what is on the Vimeo below, some poems from A California, her chapbook, and some new unpublished work from this past year. Her poems are accessible, short, to the point, and vivid so you can see them as well as hear them as you listen and read along. Enjoy.





A California is published by dancing girl press & studio. You can check it out here:
