Robert Lowell: Setting the River on Fire
Saturday, March 4th @ 3PM
In her magisterial study of the relationship between illness and art, the best-selling author of An Unquiet Mind brings an entirely fresh understanding to the work and life of Robert Lowell, whose intense, complex, and personal verse left a lasting mark on the English language and changed the public discourse about private matters. Please join us for a reading and discussion.
