P&P Live!: Barbara Kingsolver – How to Fly (In Ten Thousand Easy Lessons)

Upcoming Event
Friday, October 2, 2020 - 8:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

This event is presented in partnership with the 24th Annual F. Scott Fitzgerald Literary Festival.

In this intimate collection, the beloved author of The Poisonwood Bible and more than a dozen other New York Times bestsellers trains her eye on the everyday and the metaphysical in poems that are smartly crafted, emotionally rich, and luminous.

In How to Fly (In Ten Thousand Easy Lessons)Barbara Kingsolver offers reflections on the practical, the spiritual, and the wild. She begins with “how to” poems addressing everyday matters such as being hopeful, married, divorced; shearing a sheep; praying to unreliable gods; doing nothing at all; and of course, flying. Next come rafts of poems about making peace (or not) with the complicated bonds of friendship and family, and making peace (or not) with death, in the many ways it finds us. Some poems reflect on the redemptive powers of art and poetry itself; others consider where everything begins.
