Moore PublishedUnderground: New and Selected Poems, the retrospective from Professor Jim Moore, launches with a reading on September 11 at 7 p.m. at The Loft Literary Center. This definitive volume gathers the best of his previous work as well as twenty new poems that showcase a poet whose work should appeal to fans of Mary Oliver and Billy Collins. In poems that are frank and accessible, Moore is a generous and keen observer of the world and people around him, one who, like the best of friends, is not afraid to risk sentimentality to get at deeper emotional truths that lie beneath the surface of daily life.
