Laird Hunt and Eleni Sikelianos will speak about and sign their new books, The Evening Road and Make Yourself Happy, on Thursday, February 9th at 7:30pm.
About The Evening Road:
Meet Ottie Lee Henshaw, a beauty in small-town Indiana who travels across the countryside to witness a dark and fearful celebration. Meet Calla Destry, a woman desperate to escape violence and to find the promise of a new life. Jim Crow-era Indiana is no place for either. The Evening Road is the story of two remarkable women on the move through an America riven by fear and hatred, and eager to flee the secrets they have left behind.
About Make Yourself Happy:
What does it mean to nature for us to live in our heads, to destroy the world for our happiness? Using text and images, moving spikily across the page and across ideas in ever-expanding loops, Make Yourself Happy is devoted to one of the oldest and most important human questions: how to live. Humanity, happiness, and the survival of the biosphere spin each section forward, species are wiped out, yet the poem endures.
