Circulatory Systems—Nimrod Book Launch and Reading: Wednesday, July 22nd, 7:30 p.m.
Movement. Connection. Current. The dictionary may define circulation as “the movement of blood through the body” or “a passage or transmission from person to person or place to place,” but there are circulatory systems all around us: connections to each other, to the external world, and to our internal worlds. Join Nimrod in a celebration of these ties at a poetry reading to launch the Spring/Summer 2015 issue, Circulatory Systems: Current and Connection.  The event will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 22nd, in The University of Tulsa’s Tyrrell Hall Auditorium.
What keeps us connected? What do we do when connections break? What makes the movement of a circulatory system vital? The poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction in Circulatory Systems: Current and Connection not only cover this territory, but also take us on unexpected paths. With work by over 50 groundbreaking writers, this issue contains pieces that explore the complex connections all around us, from our relationships with other people to our connection to the natural world to the intersection of art and literature.
In keeping with the motif of circulation/connection, Nimrod invites members of the public to join us in reading their favorite poems related to the theme. Each person will have two minutes to read a favorite poem whose theme involves current or connection in any form. To sign up to read, please call or send an email with your name, contact info, and the title and author of the poem you will be reading by July 17th.
The event is free and open to the public. Copies of the issue will be available for sale.
For more information about the reading or to sign up to read, contact Nimrod at 918-631-3080 or, or go online to
