Nick Flynn: a Reading, a Conversation

October 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Reading: 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.

The Conversation: Nick will be in conversation with Ben Terrall, publisher of Namaste Motherfu**er.   The Reading: Nick Flynn’s latest book is I Will Destroy You, poetry that interrogates the potential of art to be redemptive, to remake and reform.
