Alexandra Teague and Maya Jewell Zeller Book Launches and Reading

October 5, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


The University of Idaho English Department and Creative Writing Program are hosting a book launch for professor Alexandra Teague’s Spinning Tea Cups: A Mythical American Memoir, out this October from Oregon State University Press. Teague will be joined by poet Maya Jewell Zeller, also launching her book, out takes / glove box, the newly published winner of the New American Poetry Prize.

Of Teague’s memoir, Kathryn Nuernberger writes, “With essayistic ruminations on matters of faith, kitsch, mental health, gun violence, and memory, Spinning Tea Cups has all the page-turning pleasures of an engaging story, along with insight, wisdom, and exquisite prose.” Of Zeller’s poetry, Diane Seuss writes, “Zeller’s surrealism is embodied and embedded in myth, fairy tale, the realm of the family, and the kingdom of the natural world. . . . It is the kind of deft performance only a mermaid or a mother could pull off.”

BookPeople of Moscow will be on hand to sell both authors’ books before and after the reading. The event is free and open to the public, and will begin at 6 p.m. PST on Thursday Oct. 5th at the Palouse Clearwater Environmental Institute in Moscow, ID.
