Reading: Edmund Berrigan, w/ Lauren Russell and Karen Lillis


Need a mid-month literature reading pick-me-up? Edmund Berrigan will be visiting Pittsburgh to read from his most recent collection of poetry, More Gone (City Lights, 2019), alongside local writers Lauren Russell and Karen Lillis. Other recent publications from Edmund include We'll All Go Together (Further and Fewer, 2015) and Can It! (Letter Machine Editions, 2014).

Praise for More Gone:

"A vulnerable and movingly confident self. He impresses with deep impressions." –– John Godfrey

"Edmund Berrigan's poems may be 'more gone,' but they are also more here. 'Anxious, patient and sentient,' they happen at an intimate core of self, family, community, and world, webbing out in all our neighboring shades and activities of being, where experience glitches and knits. They are rollercoastery, beautiful, knowing, revelatory, and real." –– Eleni Sikelianos
