I Will Destroy You: Poetry With Nick Flynn and Matthew Zapruder
October 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Nick Flynn’s latest book is I Will Destroy You, poetry that interrogates the potential of art to be redemptive, to remake and reform. But first the maker of art must claim responsibility for his past, his actions, his propensity to destroy others and himself. The poems delve into the deepest, most defeating parts of the self: addiction, temptation, infidelity, and repressed memory. These are poems of profound self-scrutiny and lyric intensity, jagged and probing.
Special guest Matthew Zapruder’s new book is Father’s Day. He’s also the author of four collections of poetry, most recently Come On All You Ghosts, and Sun Bear as well as Why Poetry, a book of prose.
