Edward Hirsch presents 100 Poems to Break Your Heart
With special guests Victoria Chang and Vijay Seshadri

Greenlight is thrilled to host Edward Hirsch, award-winning poet and author of the bestseller How to Read a Poem, during National Poetry Month for his new book, 100 Poems to Break Your Heart. Hirsch selects 100 poems, from the nineteenth century to the present, and illuminates them, unpacking context and references to help the reader fully experience the range of emotion and wisdom within these poems. For anyone trying to process grief, loneliness, or fear, this collection of poetry will be your guide in trying times. Victoria Chang, author of Obit, and Pulitzer Prize winner Vijay Seshadri, author of That Was Now, This Is Then, join Hirsch in an evening celebrating poetry’s power to transform oceanic depths of feeling into art that speaks to others.
