Craft Talk: The Revolution Is Emotional: Recovering Art & Community with Yanyi
May 4, 2019 | 3:00 pm
Former Emerging Poets Fellow Yanyi returns to Poets House to give a talk on his debut book, The Year of Blue Water (Yale, 2019), chosen by Carl Phillips for the 2018 Yale Younger Poets Prize. Yanyi will explore how his collection investigates a self in crisis, queerness, and the dialogues that connect the living and dead.
