Calligraphy Typewriters: The Selected Poems of Larry Eigner

August 7, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

With Jennifer Bartlett, Norma Cole, Steve Dickison, Richard Eigner, Norman Fischer, Jack Foley, Kathleen Frumkin, Lyn Hejinian, Stephen Ratcliffe, Kit Robinson

Join us for a celebration of Larry Eigner’s Selected Poems on what would be his 90th birthday.

Larry Eigner (August 7, 1927, Swampscott, MA – February 3, 1996, Berkeley, CA) began writing poetry at age eight and was first published at age nine. Revered by poets and artists across a broad spectrum of generations and schools, Eigner’s remarkably moving poetry was created through enormous effort: because of severe physical disabilities, he produced his texts by typing with only one index finger and thumb on a 1940 Royal manual typewriter, creating a body of work that is unparalleled in its originality.
