Join us for a special panel discussion in our monthly event series Milkweed Presents! For this conversation, Michael Bazzett, author of poetry books such as The Echo Chamber and You Must Remember This, leads a talk with guest writers Danez Smith, Kathryn Savage, and Mairead Small Staid about the concept of “difficult joy,” what goes into working toward happiness in the most fraught of circumstances, and what catharsis writing on these moments can bring.

Please join us in-person at Milkweed Books, our brick-and-mortar independent bookstore located on the first floor of Open Book, at 6 p.m. for an unforgettable discussion about searching for difficult joy, in life and in writing.

Milkweed Presents is a monthly event series featuring Milkweed authors as curators of conversation with local writers and community organizers on a topic of their choosing. These events are held in-person in our bookstore, Milkweed Books, on the first Wednesday of the month.
