Memory & Desire: Poetry of Midlife (The Modern Real and Surreal)
Featured poets: Gail Thomas, Lesléa Newman, and Joy Ladin
This event will take place in the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Library and Museum on the second floor of Forbes Library.
About the series: The Modern Real and Surreal: Writers and Artists on Our Age, is the Forbes Library’s author reading series. Now in its third season, the series explores contemporary themes on the premise that libraries offer vibrant spaces to engage with and explore our era’s most pressing questions – questions that in their surprises and contradictions can be understood through either a realistic lens or through fantasy, science fiction and the surreal. The series invites the community to join us in examining how story and art can provide empathy and insight in our accelerating world.
