Join poet Matthew Zapruderas as he discusses his book, Why Poetry, an impassioned call for a return to reading poetry, on Tuesday, September 26th, 7:00 pm, at City Lights Books in San Francisco, California.

About the book: “In Why Poetry, award-winning poet Matthew Zapruder takes on what it is that poetry—and poetry alone—can do. Zapruder argues that the way people have been taught to read poetry is the very thing that prevents us from enjoying it. In lively, lilting prose, he shows us how that misunderstanding interferes with our direct experience of poetry and creates the sense of confusion or inadequacy that many of us feel when faced with it.”
