Join us for the May meeting of the Browsers Modern Poetry Book Club. We will discuss Junk by Tommy Pico.
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 author and the book:
Tommy "Teebs" Pico is author of the books IRL (Birds LLC, 2016), Nature Poem (Tin House Books, 2017), and Junk (Tin House Books, 2018). He was a Queer/Art/Mentors inaugural Fellow, Lambda Literary Fellow in poetry, and NYSCA/NYFA Fellow in Poetry from the New York Foundation for the Arts, and he's the winner of a Whiting Award and the Brooklyn Public Library's Literature Prize.
“A visceral exorcism of personal and collective demons… Pico demonstrates that a person’s many selves, traumas, anxieties, hookups, and breakups can become a marker of courage and survival.” -Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
