Book Reading with Dr. Myra Sabir
June 19, 2009, 7pm to 9pm
Dr. Myra Sabir is an Assistant Dean at Cornell University. She will read from her book, She. She falls into a fascinating new genre of concise, intimate, poetic conveyance called the lyric essay.
In classic lyrical essay form, She is an experience in a book. By design, it places you in the cosmos, in your body, in nature, and in a series of cultural moments. It puts you in direct contact with your own sensing ability, and for a few minutes of reading you experience non-linear, full-body knowing.
The event will be on June 19, 2009 from 7pm-9pm at Africa House. You can purchase your tickets online or by phone.
