John Freeman presents Wind, Trees
In conversation with Deborah Landau
John Freeman—poet, editor, and founder of the literary annual Freeman's—joins us along with prizewinning poet Deborah Landau for an evening of all things Copper Canyon Press. Freeman presents his newest book Wind, Trees: a meditation on power and loss, change and adaptation, offering a stark moral critique of pandemic self-preservation—as “justifications grew / with greed like vines / up the side of a tree / taking everything." Landau will preview her next collection, Skeletons, forthcoming from Copper Canyon in 2023. Join us for an evening contemplating the liberties and limitations of the poetic line from two of its contemporary masters.
