Campus Poetry Reading

Author Reading:

Poet Anna Moschovakis reading from You and Three Others Are Approaching a Lake

March 16 Morrison Lounge 5 pm refreshments

A sharp-witted investigation of love, work, and human responsibility in the age of consumption and hyperexposure.

"[Moschovakis'] poems illuminate, amuse, and provoke. Plato would have loved them."—Ann Lauterbach

In a world where we find "everything helping itself / to everything else," Anna Moschovakis incorporates Craigslist ads, technobabble, twentieth-century ethics texts, scientific research, autobiographical detail, and historical anecdote to present an engaging lyric analysis of the way we live now. "It's your life," she tells the reader, "and we have come to celebrate it."
