PEN Out Loud: Solmaz Sharif in Conversation
National Book Award-finalist Solmaz Sharif discusses her second poetry collection, Customs. Examining the “culture of performed social skills and poetry itself—its foreclosures, affects, successes—the collection of poems “trace a pointed indoctrination to the customs of the nation-state and the English language, and the realities they impose upon the imagination.”
This event will be available for livestream via Crowdcast.
This program is presented in partnership with PEN Out Loud, Scripps Presents, and the Huntley Bookstore.
