Eileen Myles presents Evolution
Wine reception to follow

Greenlight is thrilled to welcome beloved author Eileen Myles back to the store to launch their first collection of new poems in seven years! Following 2011’s new poetry collection Snowflake/different streets, the wildly acclaimed Afterglow (a dog memoir), and the volume of selected poems I Must Be Living Twice, Evolution finds the eminent, exuberant writer at the forefront of American literature, upending genre in a new vernacular that enacts—like nobody else—the way we speak (inside and out) today. From travel around the world to walks around Marfa, Texas, with Honey the pit bull, from the aisles of Target to a utopian future where Myles is elected president—channeling cell phones, Shakers, Diet Coke and Fresca, Evolution radiates with Myles’ characteristic vital insight, purpose, and risk. Myles presents the new collection with a reading, talk, and book signing, followed by a wine reception to celebrate the launch.
