The Browsers Modern Poetry Book Club is led by Elise Dressler and meets monthly on Tuesday nights. We would like to extend an invitation to all of our poetry loving customers (RSVP is not necessary). The books are available in store at 15% off if you plan to attend the book club.
Every meeting explores a different poet through reading and discussion. This Winter and Spring, the group will explore poets published by New Directions.
March's selection is A Musical Hell by Alejandra Pizarnik
More: "An aura of legendary prestige surrounds the work of Alejandra Pizarnik," writes Cesar Aira. Her last collection to be published before her suicide in 1972, A Musical Hell is the first book of poems by Pizarnik to be published in its entirety in the U.S. Pizarnik writes at the edge of poetic impossibility, opening with a blues singer, expanding into silence, and closing into a theater of shadows and songs of the drowned.
If you have any questions about the event, please email Elise.
