Join us for the February meeting of the Browsers Modern Poetry Book Club. We will discuss American Sonnets for My Past and Future Assasin by Terrance Hayes.
Our book discussions aim to bring people together to talk about books in a safe and inviting atmosphere. Our meetings are inclusive; we invite all readers of poetry to attend. You don't have to RSVP, just come and enjoy a lively discussion about the chosen book with other readers. The books are available in store at 15% off if you plan to attend the book club.
Every meeting explores a different poet through discussion and reading aloud.
A bit more about the book, from Penguin Random House:
A powerful, timely, dazzling collection of sonnets from one of America’s most acclaimed poets, Terrance Hayes, the National Book Award-winning author of Lighthead.
In seventy poems bearing the same title, Terrance Hayes explores the meanings of American, of assassin, and of love in the sonnet form. Written during the first two hundred days of the Trump presidency, these poems are haunted by the country’s past and future eras and errors, its dreams and nightmares. Inventive, compassionate, hilarious, melancholy, and bewildered–the wonders of this new collection are irreducible and stunning.
