Publisher comments regarding Angles of Approach: It’s unusual to call a book of poetry a ‘page turner, ‘ but this collection, with the knocking and jostling of words that mark the peculiar rhythm and appeal of the prose poem, is just that. Iglesias has an uncanny ability to capture whole sweeps of history in a few lines, while her eye and ear for the quotidian result in the characters pulling us from one remarkable incident to another as if they had physically taken us by the elbow, whispering urgently.–Marie Harris
Holly Iglesias is the author of Souvenirs of a Shrunken World and a critical work, Boxing Inside the Box: Women’s Prose Poetry.

The Grey Eagle is a listening room-style concert venue. While many performers we feature have dedicated followings, we cannot offer potential performers a built-in crowd. Likewise, while we love to discover new artists and enjoy being part of the early stages of their careers, we simply cannot host performers who are unknown to Asheville audiences. Like many listening rooms around the US, The Grey Eagle is a destination location: an artist must already have some “marquee value” in the Asheville area in order to perform here. If you are (or represent) an artist who is relatively unknown in Western North Carolina, there are many other more suitable options for you, and a quick search on the web should give you a host of possibilities. thegreyeagle.com
