D. M. Aderibigbe: How the End First Showed

Harvard Book Store welcomes local poet D. M. Aderibigbe for a discussion of his latest poetry collection, How the End First Showed. Crafting raw memories into restrained and compact verse, D. M.

A witnessing son, grandson, nephew, and brother, he rejects the tradition of praise songs for the honored father, refusing to offer tribute to men who dishonor their wives.
