BANTAM, Conn. - May 10, 2022 - PRLog -- Sunday, May 15 at 7:00 PM, the Bantam Cinema & Arts Center will host a "Poetry At The Cinema" Author Talk with Susan A. Katz of Washington, Connecticut. The event will feature readings from Katz's recently released book, "The Limits of Light", which features a collection of narrative poems that explores the tales of Greek Mythology and their contemporary messages.

"The gods, ostensibly divine beings were just. We can see parallels between the triumphs and disasters of the ancient Greek gods, and modern civilization. It is almost as if these ancient stories foretold the future," comments Katz.

From Apollo, who was thwarted in love, to Scylla who betrays her father for lust, to Icarus who strives to fly to the sun, only to fall to his death… the tales of the gods unfold in Katz's compelling and dramatic narrative poetry.

A nationally and internationally published poet, Katz's work has appeared in numerous anthologies, journals, and literary magazines. Her "The Limits of Light" is her fourth published book of poetry. "Susan is a God-blessed poet. She does not sing in chorus," stated Menke Katz, Poet, Editor, Professor, Philosopher, and no relation to Susan A. Katz.

For more than 30 years, Katz worked for The New York State Poets in Public Service, and then, with music and movement specialist, Judith A. Thomas. Her work has been cited as: "…precise imagery, directness, and honesty…outspokenly erotic and sensual, evoking a powerful sense of physical passion and deeply felt experiences," Robert Wilson, Poetry Editor of Negative Capability.

Katz has been actively writing and publishing poetry for more than 50 years. Her poems reveal her passion for language and her belief that "Poetry is the need to write beyond the limits of choice; the freedom to see beyond the limits of light."

Titles of poems within "The Limits of Light" include "The Rape of Persephone"; "Of Beauty Born" (Medusa); "To Phaeton"; "By What Name Love"; "What Matters"; "Hazard of the Heart"; and "The Gift".

Copies of "The Limits of Light" will be available for purchase at the May 15th event. The book is also available at http://www.austinmacauley.com/us/book/limits-light; Amazon: https://amzn.to/3keuIo8; The Book Depository: https://bit.ly/3gmcG2m; and in select bookstores. Susan A.
