Poets Jill Bialosky & Philip Schultz in Conversation

March 21, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

Poet Jill Bialosky will be in conversation with Pulitzer Prize poet, Philip Schultz on her new collection, “The Players”. “The Players” is about the central players in our lives, our relationships over time — between mother and son, mother and daughter-and how one generation of relationships informs and shapes the next.

The opening sequence “Manhood” looks at the insular world of baseball, shedding light on the complexities of gender, boyhood, and coming of age. The poet captures the language of baseball talk Bialosky observed as a mother, and brings a deeper understanding to the experience of observer “Mom” and the young men she sees growing into adulthood.

“American Comedy” is a sonnet sequence about the absurdities and realities of modern domestic life; figures in literature are the players in “Classical Education.” The final section, “The Players,” makes forceful revelations as to how generations hand down both strengths and weaknesses.
