The Tenth Muse with Tyehimba Jess

Dec 10, 2018

We ride the wake of each other’s rhythm, beating our hearts’ syncopated tempo with music all our own. Tyehimba Jess, winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry for Olio, takes on a longstanding Poetry Center tradition, curating and introducing readings by three of his favorite poets: LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs, Douglas Kearney, and Tracie Morris. The evening culminates with a short reading by Jess himself, plus a musical performance of his work by Olithea Anglin, Meredith Wright, Melanie Dyer, Yohann Potico and pianist Janice Lowe, who wrote the composition.
