Poet and Poetry Center Senior Library Assistant Leela Denver leads a Shop Talk on work of Hanif Abdurraqib, who reads for the Poetry Center on Thursday, March 26.
Shop Talks are free, informal, one-hour discussion groups focused on the work of a poet who will be reading at the Poetry Center. No advance knowledge of the poet or works discussed is needed. Each Shop Talk begins with a mini-lecture on the featured author, followed by a conversation about the author and the work. A study packet containing biographical information, excerpts, and criticism is made available at the Shop Talk. Discussions take place at 6:00 p.m. This event will take place in the lobby of the Poetry Center library.
