Literary Partners Program: Book Launch for Against Death: 35 Essays on Living

Nov 12, 2019 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The U.S. launch of Against Death: 35 Essays on Living will feature readings by editor Elee Kraljii Gardiner and contributors C.M. Faulkner and Emma Smith-Stevens, as well as special guest readers Nick Flynn (I Will Destroy You) and Porochista Khakpour (Sick), who will read short selections of their own work as well as selections from the anthology. Already named a Best Book of the Year in Canada, this Anvil Press anthology explores what it means to come close to death from an array of perspectives and conditions. Frequently funny, always incisive, the essays avoid aphorism and bromide in favor of figuring out how to live through—and after—a close call. A reception and book signing will follow.

This event is made possible through Poets House’s Literary Partners Program. Poets House is an ADA accessible facility.

Admission Free and open to the public Sponsored By Anvil Press
