The Language of Men & Emblem f/ Anthony D'Aries & Richard Hoffman
Join us for a reading with two outstanding writers:
Winner of the PEN/New England Discovery Award, Anthony D'Aries' father was a Vietnam vet who spent his spare time rebuilding cars and stuffing roadkill. In his startling and poignant new memoir, which Andre Dubus III calls "a profoundly important book," he follows the trail of his father in Vietnam and looks at what it means to speak The Language of Men.
Emerson Professor and award-winning author of such works as Interference & Other Stories and Gold Star Road, Richard Hoffman shares poems from his newest work in which he resurrects the form of the Emblem in what Terrance Hayes calls "a marvelous new book."
