Advice from the Lights by Steph Burt
December 3, 2017 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
In this new collection, the poet and critic Steph Burt—who grew up in Washington—explores gender identity, childhood, and what it means to be an adult. One poem is addressed, poignantly, to naked mole rats, notably unattractive animals that live at the National Zoo: “pretty to no-one / butt of a joke and protagonist of a cartoon / you make ridicule seem inescapable / not at home anywhere.” Perhaps Burt will wade into such feelings of dislocation during this conversation with local writer Sandra Beasley.
