“Burial Rituals of the Habitual Tomorrow” poetry event upcoming!

Monday, 11/28/22 from 5-6:30 pm CST

“Three poets in conversation engage poetry as a process of presence, absence, and coming into being. There will be poetry as myth, vengeance, sigil-work, and hex-craft.” Poet, scholar, editor, and curator Heid E. Erdrich and I will be reading from our latest books of poetry, and we will have a death-defying, bedazzled conversation moderated by none other than poet, performer, and librettist and U of M professor Douglas Kearney! Plus a Q & A. Location: the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, Northrop Auditorium, 84 Church St SE, Minneapolis, MN 55455, inside the intimate 168-seat Best Buy Theater

ACCESSIBILITY: This will be a hybrid event. Bring your centaur friends! I mean, it will also be streamed. ASL interpretation is being sought, as I understand. The building is wheelchair accessible. Closest parking is at the paid Church Street garage.

Books will be for sale and there will be a reception and signings afterward. Please watch for official announcements soon!

The Voice, Art, and Community: UMN Series features diverse voices through the arts and humanities. Events in this series explore lived experiences and individual perspectives of creators, introducing nuanced conversations that further our understanding of equity, justice, and our public and institutional history. The art goes beyond what we see and hear and allows us to learn about the experiences and circumstances that inspired it. This collaborative initiative features events from across the University of Minnesota system and community partners.
