All Request Live: A Reading and Conversation with Victoria Chang and Dana Levin

Join two of contemporary poetry's formal innovators as they choose each other's set lists, live on stage, and spark conversation through this process.

What draws a reader to a poem? How do poems come into their forms? What brings aesthetic delight? What is it to be writing and reading poems now, in America, in the midst of generational tumult and change? These and other questions will come into play as Chang and Levin read from and discuss their new books of poetry.

This event has been cancelled. Thank you for understanding.
