112th: Alice Attie on "These Figures Lining the Hills"
Join us on Thursday, March 3rd at 7pm for a discussion and reading with Alice Attie on her book of poetry, These Figures Lining the Hills.
Synopsis: In These Figures Lining the Hills, readers enter an eloquent, philosophically poignant space where we slip into the folds of language.
Attie's voice is exquisite and singular. Her brilliant writing brings together language and the ineffable to inhabit the same liminal space where words may both "be" and "not be" in an oscillation of possibility and wonder. Her works are dazzling tributes to a poetics of the moment, where Attie's words are poised to take note of the smallest things and where she shapes and reshapes figures to form, and reform, the collage of her writing.
Alice Attie is an artist and a writer. Her book Harlem on the Verge, documenting the transformations of Harlem, New York, was published in 2001.
