September 29: Poetry readings by Rebecca Foust from her newest book, Only
Only scales the cliff-face of adulthood, that paradoxical ascent in which the longer we live the less we know of life, in which we find that each of us is only ourselves and yet delicately interconnected with everyone, everything else. Join us to hear Rebecca’s poetry tell what it means to be human in a world that sometimes feels as if it is approaching apocalypse.
