CHARLES BERNSTEIN with TONYA M. FOSTER

May 18 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

Join us for a conversation and reading with Charles Bernstein, to celebrate his new collection Topsy-Turvy (University of Chicago Press) —a book that speaks to our time of “covidity” in a lyrically explosive mix of comedy and melancholy that showcases the much-heralded Bernstein at his best. With a jumble of forms ranging from horoscopes and sea shanties to translations and screenplays, Topsy-Turvy captures the tenor of our times while giving readers an instruction worthy of Beckett: “Continue / on, as / before, as after.”

“Not set out to be a book about the pandemic, this rowdy collection of poems, performances and translations nevertheless speaks volumes about the upside-down world we have all found ourselves living in.”
—The Bookseller

At this special event, Bernstein will appear in conversation with fellow poet Tonya M. Foster, a meeting of the minds in our topsy-turvy world that is not to be missed. Free to attend, registration required. We hope to “see” you there! MORE INFO HERE: https://www.raintaxi.com/charles-bernstein/
