Friday, March 20, 2:00pm, Central Library on Market Street
Writing from inside the heads of fictional characters requires intuitive or professional understanding of human psychology. Authors Jacob Appel (The Biology of Luck), Chloe Benjamin (The Anatomy of Dreams), and Susan Coll (The Stager) will discuss the process of divining their characters’ psyches.
Please join us Sunday, April 19, at 2:00 pm for a Literary Salon with poet Lisa Russ Spaar.
To paraphrase the poet Anne Carson, our lives begin the moment desire (for food, love, shelter, sky, the divine) enters us, and how we manage that yearning—what we make of it, to what uses we put it—is largely the measure of who we are. In what unique ways do poems not only grow out of but create and sustain the experience of desire? "I know not which, Desire, or Grant -," wrote Emily Dickinson, "Be wholly beautiful -." Join us as poet Kyle Dargan interviews poet Lisa Russ Spaar about the ways in which poems can uniquely both desire and grant, reach for and fulfill human experiences of yearning. Free and open to the public.
