Join the Loft Literary Center, Minnesota Center for Book Arts, and Milkweed Editions to kick off autumn at Open Book! Mingle with the Twin Cities literary community, sample the Loft's fall classes, swing by MCBA for marbling and printmaking demos, and join Milkweed for a poetry reading from Chris Santiago, Kathryn Nuernberger, and Wayne Miller.
Join us for this reading with poet, essayist, and translator P. Scott Cunningham in celebration of his debut collection of poems, Ya Te Veo (University of Arkansas), also featuring Twin Cities-based poets Michael Kleber-Diggs and Katharine Rauk.
The winner of the 2018 Lindquist & Vennum Prize for Poetry maps an alien but unnervingly familiar world as it accelerates into cataclysm. Here refugees listen to relaxation tapes that create an Arcadia out of tires and bleach; here the alphabet spells out disaster and devours children. The result is a collection that both beguiles and wounds.
