Poet Roger Reeves
September 8, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
In March of 2022, Norton published Roger Reeves’s latest poetry collection, Best Barbarian. This breathtaking collection balances deep precision with a wide-ranging free association that tackles racism, immigration, climate change, love, and loss amid the backdrop of literary and musical touchstones such as Beowulf and the jazz musician Alice Coltrane. While a Suzanne Young Murray Fellow at Harvard’s Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study this past year, his poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, and The New Republic. Reeves will discuss his poetics with Stokes Center director Charlotte Pence and read some of his poetry in a public talk. Book signing and refreshments to follow. Free and open to the public.
