The Thirsty Lab Poetry Series meets on the fourth (and fifth) Tuesday of each month at The Thirsty Lab in Princeton. Hosted by Susan Roney-O'Brien, the reading series features area and visiting poets. This month their feature will be Jamie Samdahl.
Jamie Samdahl is a poet and naturalist from Princeton, Massachusetts. An alumna of Smith College, she studied American Music History, Buddhism, and Poetry. Samdahl’s work has been published in Rattle, Washington Square Review, Noble/Gas Qtrly, Mountain Record: The Zen Practitioner’s Journal, and elsewhere. Her poems grapple with such shadowy and vast topics as mental illness, life in the wilderness, and the untimely death of a lover.
