[Offsite] Word Works: Terrance Hayes

April 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We’re excited to be providing books for the following Hugo House event:

The Craft of Obsession

National Book Award-winning poet Terrance Hayes will look at a poem from each of the late poet Lynda Hull’s three books: Ghost Money (1986), Star Ledger (1991), and The Only World (1995). The poems demonstrate the ways a poet can develop themes and strategies from one book to the next. Hull’s poems about music and musicians, in particular, show how a poet can both accept and challenge his or her obsessions.
