A Reading & Conversation With Kevin Young
Thursday, November 18 @ 12:00 pm
Whether it’s the fireflies of a Louisiana summer caught in a mason jar (doomed by their collection), or his grandmother, Mama Annie, who latches the screen door when someone steps out for just a moment, all that makes up our flickering precarious joy, all that we want to protect, is lifted into the light in this moving book. Stones: Poems becomes an ode to Kevin Young’s home places and his dear departed, and to what of them – of us – poetry can save. Moderated by Kaveh Akbar, author of Pilgrim Bell: Poems.
