Frank Bidart and Alice Oswald

April 3 @ 8:00 pm

A reading by two of our finest performers of poetry. Frank Bidart’s new book is Half-light: Collected Poems. “No other poet sounds like Bidart,” wrote Garth Greenwell. You can hear the muscular physicality of his language, the way the sentence twists around the line breaks, never quite as expected. His work is one of the unfolding wonders of the literature of our time.” Alice Oswald’s new collection is Falling Awake. “Hers is a mystical work, and when she writes you…

Mary Gaitskill: First Reads

April 13 @ 8:00 pm

Upon publication of her new collection of essays, Somebody with a Little Hammer, Mary Gaitskill takes on a special assignment: to read a work she’s never read before (we’ll announce the title in 2017), then discuss the experience of this literary encounter. “Her brand of brainy lyricism, of acid shot through with grace, is unlike anyone else’s.

Eileen Myles and Chris Kraus

April 24 @ 7:30 pm

Eileen Myles’s new memoir, Afterglow, is about Rosie, her beloved pitbull and running mate in the 1992 Presidential campaign. “Since the publication of her first book, Myles has been offering audiences fleshy, candid slices of her consciousness and life,” wrote Chris Kraus. “She writes in a style that is deceptively immediate and conversational, giddily expressing a huge range of speculative thought.” Kraus’s new book is a biography of Kathy Acker. She is best known for the novel I Love Dick…
