Shark attacks, urban uprisings, floods, giant robots, and the black automaton invade Chicago
Douglas Kearney–poet, performer, librettist, Cave Canem fellow, author of Fear, Some and The Black Automaton–will be reading here at the Poetry Foundation on September 23 at 7pm as part of the new Harriet Reading Series.
Kearney wrote for us as part of our “Craft Work” series, and he did not disappoint, providing (sometimes scalding, sometimes scholarly, always killer) illumination into his writing process:
This is why Terrance Hayes said of Kearney’s latest: “This is a jaw-dropping, electrifying book. What else can I say? I have never encountered poetry like this before.”
If you’re in Chicago, this reading is not to be missed.
Space is limited (as is the stock of free Harriet beer), so RSVP here.
