TERRANCE HAYES at Harvard Book Store

June 20, 2018 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Harvard Book Store welcomes National Book Award–winning poet TERRANCE HAYES for a discussion of his latest book of poetry, American Sonnets for My Past and Future Assassin.

In seventy poems bearing the same title, Terrance Hayes explores the meanings of American, of assassin, and of love in the sonnet form. Written during the first two hundred days of the Trump presidency, these poems are haunted by the country’s past and future eras and errors, its dreams and nightmares. Inventive, compassionate, hilarious, melancholy, and bewildered—the wonders of this new collection are irreducible and stunning.
