Sommer BrowningAuraria Librarian Sommer Browning’s new book of poetry Backup Singers has just been published by Birds, LLC. An assistant professor and head of Electronic Access and Discovery Services at the Auraria Library, Browning’s first book Either Way I’m Celebrating came out in 2001.

“The Whistler,” a poem from Browning’s new book, can be found at The Academy of American Poets website.

According to the publisher, “Browning follows up her sold out debut, Either Way I’m Celebrating, with an even rawer and starker, and again darkly humorous navigation of friendship, marriage, and motherhood. The result is a more overtly political assessment of the absurd deficit between what we’re confronted with and what we’re equipped with to deal with those confrontations: ‘It’s a girl, / and the wires she needs // open her hands / before they’re fists.'”

Browning read from the new book this week at Counterpath, a downtown gallery and event space with New York poet and artist Bianca Stone.
