Local Author Tate Lewis-Carroll Poetry Book Signing at Bobzbay Books

On Friday, February 3rd we’re excited to host local author Tate Lewis-Carroll for a book signing of his latest book “What’s Left”!

Books will be available for sale during the event, if you cannot attend — limited copies are available after the event.

This event coincides with Downtown Bloomington First Friday (Tour de Chocolat theme). It’s a great night to come downtown and support local businesses & a local author!

Tate Lewis-Carroll (they/them) is the editor of The 2022 Texas Poetry Calendar, serves as Poetry Editor for the Ocotillo Review, and edits for Kallisto Gaia Press. They’ve lived most of their life somewhere in the Midwest and now reside on a small farm in rural Illinois with their photographer wife, Izzy, and many animals. Find them on Instagram @tatelewiscarroll Twitter @tplpoetry or somewhere out in the woods, reading.

What’s Left is a living record of Tate Lewis-Carroll’s dying father and the often estranged but sometimes idyllic relationship they shared. As urgently as the initial cancer diagnosis and death six months afterwards, this project began with startlingly raw poems written beside the father’s deathbed. Yet, upon uncovering the father’s wide-ranging nature photography, Lewis-Carroll is able to reexamine and finally relate to him in a way that had seemed unreachable in life. Obsessed by this act of excavation, Lewis-Carroll unpacks every eclectic box in an attempt to discover what’s missing, what’s sincere, and what’s left after death.
