Modern Poetry Book Club

The Browsers Modern Poetry Book Club is led by Elise Dressler and meets monthly. 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.

April's selection is Across the Vapour Gulf by Will Alexander. 

More: Composed and collected by slow accretion over the span of thirty years, Across the Vapour Gulf opens with a note by the poet: "When I first laid eyes on the writing of Cioran I was smitten by the form. The aphorism seemed cleansed of detritus--in Cioran's hands, it seemed to spontaneously ignite. Poetry, history, philosophy, the essay, medicinally combined, appearing on the other side of itself as insight. Reading Cioran opened an unexpected neural pathway, opening the way for the composition of the compilation at hand. Each entry was instantaneous. They welled up and appeared with such astonishing alacrity, that they seemed to compose themselves practically fully formed."

If you have any questions about the event, please email Elise.
