3:30–4:30pm Equipment for Living: On Poetry and Pop Music
How can art help us make sense—or nonsense—of the world? Poet and MSU faculty member Michael Robbins has a refreshing, insightful take on the question of whether poetry and popular music can serve as essential tools for living. He talks with local musician Warren Zanes about his new book of “brilliant, illuminating criticism.”
7:30–8:30 pm Meg Wolitzer in Conversation.
Join Meg Wolitzer, New York Times bestselling author of The Female Persuasion, The Interestings etc., and her editor, Glen Ridge local Sarah McGrath, as they discuss her latest book, The Female Persuasion, described as, “an electric, multi-layered novel about ambition, power, friendship, and mentorship, and the romantic ideals we all follow deep into adulthood.”
Tickets $30 including a copy of The Female Persuasion.
