Join Milkweed Editions to launch and celebrate acclaimed poet Gregory Orr’s memoir, The Blessing, a book that “offers eloquent testimony to the engaging power of art in a man’s life” (Washington Post). After experiencing a series of tumultuous and violent events in his life, Orr turns to language to heal from the ensuing trauma. Generous and life-affirming, The Blessing is a powerful ode to poetry. Emmy Award–winning documentarian David Grubin joins Orr on stage for a reading and conversation, followed by a book signing and reception. All are welcome. 10 River Terrace.
