The Art of the Personal: The Relationship Between Poetry and Memoir

The Art of the Personal: The Relationship Between Poetry and Memoir

What happens to memory when the imagination comes into play? It’s expected, desired, in poetry, of course, but doesn’t memoir deal with autobiographical fact, what actually happened? And why would poets want or need to write memoirs? What are they after and how does it affect their poetry? These are some of the things Jill Bialosky, Philip Schultz and Grace Schulman will discuss in a conversation after their reading.

Philip Schultz is the author of My Dyslexia, a memoir; The Wherewithal, a novel in verse; and seven collections of poetry, including the Pulitzer Prize–winning Failure. The founder and director of the Writers Studio, he lives in East Hampton, New York.

Free but reservations suggested.
