Matthew Zapruder – Why Poetry – Reading and Q&A

August 16, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm  — Free

Fireside Room

An impassioned call for a return to reading poetry and an incisive argument for poetry’s accessibility to all readers, by critically acclaimed poet Matthew Zapruder

In WHY POETRY, award-winning poet Matthew Zapruder takes on what it is that poetry—and poetry alone—can do. Zapruder argues that the way we have been taught to read poetry is the very thing that prevents us from enjoying it. In lively, lilting prose, he shows us how that misunderstanding interferes with our direct experience of poetry and creates the sense of confusion or inadequacy that many of us feel when faced with it.

Matthew will read from his new book, WHY POETRY, followed by a Q&A at the Hotel Sorrento Fireside Room.

Food and drink will be available for purchase.
