Jorie Graham and Shane McCrae

Jorie Graham’s new book of poems is Fast. “In her gorgeous, dense poetry, the drama of the mind in motion is what holds our attention,” wrote April Bernard. “Here the political is absolutely personal — her reckoning with the destruction of the earth is also a reckoning with her own mortality.” Shane McCrae’s new collection of poetry is In the Language of My Captor. “Out of personal history, out of the history of an enduringly fractured nation and out of the deep history of language, he is writing the most urgent, electric poems of his generation,” wrote Garth Greenwell.

Introductions by Mark Wunderlich and Rachel Zucker. This program is part of the Unterberg Poetry Center.
