Monday, March 4, 7:30 PM
Declan Ryan presents Crisis Actor

In conversation with Maggie Millner

Irish poet Declan Ryan takes the Greenlight stage to present his bracing debut collection Crisis Actor, already released in the United Kingdom to overwhelming acclaimChronicling various kinds of failures and farewells, Crisis Actor is peopled by faded heroes and deferential devotees, a hanged donkey and a bloated rat, boxers and their fates, solitary bachelors, and disillusioned youths. There are touching elegies, reportage, and bruised, wary replayings. While the overwhelming sense is of life going on elsewhere, there are still flashes of camaraderie: precious, precarious moments that reach toward grace and redemption.  Ryan discusses his work with fellow poet Maggie Millner (Couplets: A Love Story), along with a reading and book signing.
