Neither Rhyme Nor Reason Poetry Book Club: Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude by Ross Gay
Monday, April 15, 7pm
All are welcome for our poetry discussions, centering on a different collection of poetry each month.
To connect with fellow poetry lovers, see our facebook page:
Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude is a sustained meditation on that which goes away—loved ones, the seasons, the earth as we know it—that tries to find solace in the processes of the garden and the orchard. That is, this is a book that studies the wisdom of the garden and orchard, those places where all—death, sorrow, loss—is converted into what might, with patience, nourish us.
Ross Gay is the author of two previous collections, Against Which and Bringing the Shovel Down. His poems have appeared in American Poetry Review, Orion, the Sun, and elsewhere. He is an associate professor of poetry at Indiana University and teaches in Drew University’s low-residency MFA program in poetry. He also serves on the board of the Bloomington Community Orchard.
