Poetry Aloud, a modern poetry book group led by Elise Dressler, has met at Browsers regularly for months now. We would like to extend an invitation to all of our poetry loving customers (RSVP is not necssary). The group meets every other Tuesday at Browsers from 5:00-6:30. Every meeting explores a different poet or group of poets through reading and discussion.
May 30: My Life by Lyn Hejinian: This book has been revised to three times total. It is a kind of abstract memoir in collage form. She first wrote the book in 1980, revised 1987 and then 2002. Each revision marks an edit to the story of her life as it changes. It is prose-y writing and carries you along into her story-world. Her writing in this book is kin to Gertrude Stein’s poetic, discursive prose.
If you have any questions about the event, please email Andrea.
