Roger Reeves at Cooper Union

Join award-winning poet Roger Reeves as he speaks about finding community, solidarity, and joy as part of a free public program around the release of his nonfiction debut, Dark Days: Fugitive Essays. In lyrical essays interweaving cultural criticism ranging from hip hop’s OutKast to Toni Morrison, with history and personal memoir, Reeves presents a profound and insightful vision for how to see and experience the world despite fear, chaos, and uncertainty. “The peace we fight and search for,” Reeves writes, “begins and ends with being still.” Greenlight Bookstore will sell books at the event.
