Christopher Kennedy, The Strange God Who Makes Us

May 6 @ EST 7:30 pm - 8:15 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Free – $20.00

Christopher Kennedy will be in conversation with BOA Editions Publisher and Executive Director Peter Conners.

An exploration of memory, mourning, and humanity’s precarious relationship to the Anthropocene, Kennedy’s new book of prose poems records our fragile relationship with time and the imperfect ways in which we document our lives. Called “deft and wildly sophisticated” by Daniel Lawless,The Strange God Who Makes Us serves both as an attempt to preserve and honor the past and a call to action to ensure an inhabitable planet for future generations.

Christopher Kennedy is the author of several books, including Clues from the Animal Kingdom (BOA Editions, 2018), Ennui Prophet (BOA Editions, 2011), and Encouragement for a Man Falling to His Death (BOA Editions, 2007).  In 2011, he was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship for Poetry. He is a professor of English in the MFA Program in Creative Writing at Syracuse University.
