Co-presented by City Lights Books & Booksellers
Litquake is thrilled to present this launch event for the new poetry collection Twice Alive (New Directions), by Pulitzer Prize winner Forrest Gander. With these searing ecological love poems, Gander addresses the exigencies of our historical moment and the intimacies, personal and environmental, that bind us to others and to the world. Drawing from his training in geology and the tradition of Sangam literature, Gander invests these poems with an emotional intensity that illuminates our deep-tangled interrelations. Forrest will read from and discuss his work. Audience Q&A to follow. FREE, $10-15 suggested donation
Registration is required. Spots are limited. Event will also be livecasted on Facebook Live.
