Elliott Bay Book Company presents Aimee Nezhukumatathil and John Freeman
September 10, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDT
From the organizers:
“If things go as we imagine this might, this evening’s program will feature Aimee Nezhukumatathil, one of the most vital poets of her generation, doing this virtual reading program with her first book of prose, the dazzling, animated book that is World of Wonders: In Praise of Fireflies, Whale Sharks, and Other Astonishments (Milkweed). She, presumably at home in Mississippi, will be joined by John Freeman, whom we think will be linked in from London. Most known for extraordinary work as an editor and essayist, he is also becoming increasingly recognized as a poet of note. Copper Canyon Press, which now also publishes Aimee Nezhukumatathil’s poetry (Oceanic), has just published John Freeman’s second collection, The Park, following his earlier Maps. This program should feature strong talk about the planet, and some excellent poetry.”
