Bone: An Evening w/ Yrsa Daley-Ward

September 27, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm UTC+0

Celebrated poet Yrsa Daley-Ward presents bone, a poignant collection of autobiographical poems about the heart, life, and the inner self.

ABOUT BONE

Bone. Visceral. Close to. Stark.

The poems in Yrsa Daley-Ward’s collection bone are exactly that: reflections on a particular life honed to their essence—so clear and pared-down, they become universal.

From navigating the oft competing worlds of religion and desire, to balancing society’s expectations with the raw experience of being a woman in the world; from detailing the experiences of growing up as a first generation black British woman, to working through situations of dependence and abuse; from finding solace in the echoing caverns of depression and loss, to exploring the vulnerability and redemption in falling in love, each of the raw and immediate poems in Daley-Ward’s bone resonate to the core of what it means to be human.

“You will come away bruised.
You will come away bruised
but this will give you poetry.”
