Matthew Zapruder - Why Poetry — in conversation with Howard Norman

Upcoming Event
Sunday, October 8, 2017 at 3:00 pm

Zapruder’s lively, engaging book presents poetry as something anyone can read and shows why everyone should read it. The poetry editor for The New York Times and the author of four collections of poems, Zapruder confronts common fears about poetry head on, and in conversational discussions of individual poems shows that there’s nothing to be afraid of—and a great deal to be gained. To be sure, poetry asks for a different kind of reading than novels or newspapers do, and Zapruder introduces useful tools to enrich the reading experience.

Zapruder will be in conversation with Howard Norman, author most recently of My Darling Detective.
