Poetry Night feat. Mary Jo Bang

Mary Jo BangIN-STORE
Thursday, September 28, 7:30 PM
Mary Jo Bang presents 
A Film in Which I Play Everyone: Poems
Featuring Timothy Donnelly & Paul Tran

Poet Mary Jo Bang (Elegy) is at her most provocative in her eighth book of poems, A Film in Which I Play Everyone, where the first-person speaker plays herself and everyone she’s ever met. She falls in and out of love with men and with women, and struggles to realize her ambitions while suffering crushing losses that give rise to dark thoughts. She’s drawn to stories that mirror her own condition: those of women who struggle to speak in a world that would silence them. Tinged with dark humor and sharpened with keen camerawork, A Film in Which I Play Everyone stars Bang at her best. Timothy Donnelly (Chariot) and Paul Tran (All the Flowers Kneeling) join Bang onstage to celebrate her latest collection.
