Susan Stewart: A Poetry Reading
March 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Susan Stewart will read from Cinder, which gathers for the first time the poet’s work from a thirty-five-year career, including many extraordinary new poems. From brief songs to longer meditative sequences, and always with formal innovation and exquisite precision, Stewart evokes the innocence of childhood, the endangered mysteries of the natural world, and deeply felt perceptions, both acute and shared. We invite you to join us for a reading in celebration of this new volume of poems.
“Stewart explores our insatiable desire to remember and make meaning out of this remembering,” Ange Mlinko wrote in the Nation. Reading across this retrospective collection is a singular experience of seeing the unfolding development of one of the most ingenious and moving lyric writers in contemporary poetry.
