Li-Young Lee - Poets Aloud

When: Thu., April 26, 7 p.m. 2018

Celebrated poet Li-Young Lee returns with a breathtaking new volume about the violence of desire and the peace of love. The Undressing is a tonic for spiritual anemia; it attempts to uncover things hidden since the dawn of the world. These mysterious, unassuming poems investigate the human violence and dispossession increasingly prevalent around the world, as well as the horrors of growing up as a child of refugees. While the subjects of these layered, impassioned poems are wide-ranging, their driving engine is a burning need to understand our collective human mission.
