The Poetic Tradition within Jericho Brown’s “The Tradition”

May 5 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


This event is part of One Book, One Philadelphia 2021 centering Jericho Brown’s collection of poems, THE TRADITION.

Who inspires Jericho Brown, and what poetic traditions and legacies is he upholding in his work? Join Kalela Williams, Director of Writing at Mighty Writers, for an online discussion of Brown’s poetry in relation to the context of the works of other writers within his creative orbit. Bring a pen and paper for a creative prompt designed to get you thinking of what poetic tradition means to you.

Check out an ebook copy of The Tradition from the Free Library.

Registrants will receive a Zoom event link. A limited number of paperback giveaway copies are available for pick-up from the Central Library on a first-registered basis.
