“Words and Music” at the Tranquilbuzz Coffee House is now “Just Words”! The April 21 event, beginning at 2:00pm, will feature Beate Sigriddaughter’s newest book of poetry entitled Xanthippe and Her Friends.

The book is reviewed by Matt Paust on his blog. You may also want to check out this podcast interview about the book.

Asked about her background, Sigriddaughter says, “I grew up in Nuremberg, Germany, playing in the nearby castle grounds and/or World War II ruins and have never quite gotten over the contrast. I love words, poems, stories, as well as dance, and somehow (long life, long story) I got to be one of Silver City’s poets laureate.”
Let us not save each other
for special occasions. 

Open mic will follow Sigriddaughter’s reading. The Tranquilbuzz Coffeehouse is located at 112 W. Yankie Street in downtown Silver City.

We respectfully acknowledge that the entirety of southwestern New Mexico is the traditional territory, since time immemorial, of the Chis-Nde, also known as the people of the Chiricahua Apache Nation. The Chiricahua Apache Nation is recognized as a sovereign Native Nation by the United States in the Treaty of Amity, Commerce, and Friendship of 1 July 1852 (10 Stat. 979) (Treaty of Santa Fe ratified 23 March 1853 and proclaimed by President Franklin Pierce 25 March 1853).
