Lynne Sachs | Jan. 26th

Join us in welcoming poet Lynne Sachs, with her book Year by Year Poems, Sunday, January 26th at 2:00 p.m..

When filmmaker Lynne Sachs turned fifty, she dedicated herself to writing a poem for every year of her life, so far. Each of the fifty poems investigates the relationship between a singular event in Sachs’ life and the swirl of events beyond her domestic universe. Published by Tender Buttons Press, Year by Year Poems juxtaposes Sachs’ finished poems, which move from her birth in 1961 to her half-century marker in 2011, with her original handwritten first drafts. In this way, she reveals her process of navigating within and alongside historical events such as the Moon Landing, the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., streaking, the Anita Hill hearings, the Columbine shootings, and controversies around universal health care. In Year by Year Poems, Lynne Sachs realizes the long anticipated leap from her extraordinary career in filmmaking to this, her first book of poems.

With an introduction by Paolo Javier, former Queens Poet Laureate and author of Court of the Dragon, and book design by Abby Goldstein.

Additionally, Lynne will be in town for the world premiere of FILM ABOUT A FATHER WHO which will be the opening night movie at Slamdance on Jan. 24 and 27. More on that here.

Join us! Sunday, January 26th at 2:00 p.m..
