Wilton Library: Jorie Graham: Poetry as contagious ceremony that might save the world (In-Person)

January 27 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Thursday, repeating until February 17, 2022

Please join the Wilton Library in person in the Brubeck Room for a four-week literature seminar led by Judson Scruton, who will take us through selected works by the poet Jorie Graham. She has been called one of the most celebrated poets of the American post-war generation by the Poetry Foundation.

According to poet-critic Calvin Bedient, she is “never less than in dialogue with everything. She is the world champion at shot-putting the great questions. It hardly matters what the title is: the subject itself is always ‘the outermost question being asked me by the World today.’”

Advance registration is required. Register online or call 203.762.6334. There is no charge for this program. By registering for the first session you will automatically be registered for all four sessions. This lecture series is made possible with the support of the Literary Series in Memory of Amy Quigley. Please email Andrea Sato with any questions.
