Literary Partners Program: Book Launch for Gregory Orr’s The Blessing, with David Grubin
Sep 11, 2019 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Milkweed Editions to launch and celebrate acclaimed poet Gregory Orr’s memoir, The Blessing, a book that “offers eloquent testimony to the engaging power of art in a man’s life” (Washington Post). After experiencing a series of tumultuous and violent events in his life, Orr turns to language to heal from the ensuing trauma. Generous and life-affirming, The Blessing is a powerful ode to poetry.
Emmy Award–winning documentarian David Grubin joins Orr on stage for a reading and conversation, followed by a book signing and reception. All are welcome.
This event is made possible through Poets House’s Literary Partners Program. Poets House is an ADA accessible facility.
