Harvard Book Store is pleased to welcome Pulitzer Prize–winning poet JORIE GRAHAM for a reading of her new book of poems, Place.
An extraordinary American artist whom The New Yorker
calls “a mesmerizing voice” Graham is renowned for poetry that is startling, original, and deeply relevant, and has been placed in the poetic lineage of such masters as T.S. Eliot and John Ashbery. In Place
, Graham explores the ways in which our imagination, intuition, and experience aid us in navigating a world moving towards its own annihilation and a political reality where the human person and its dignity are increasingly disposable.
