BH: Jessica Hornik reads and signs, A Door on the River.

In this remarkable first book, Hornik's poems carry a quiet power rooted in nature, place, and family. We find our own lives in hers--in lyrics that sing of the natural world, the close-held territory of home, the unvoiced drama of family life, of what it means to be the "Invisible Woman." A Door on the River marks the emergence of a beautiful, confident voice in the landscape of American poetry.
 
Jessica Hornik was born and raised in upstate New York and earned degrees from Cornell and New York University. Her poems have appeared in the Atlantic, Poetry, the New Republic, National Review, the Times Literary Supplement, the Yale Review, and many other publications. She and her family make their home in a hamlet along the Mohawk River.
