Event description
"Survival is A Style" with Christian Wiman

About this Event

Join Christian Wiman and Redeemer West Side for an intimate conversation coinciding with the release of his new collection of poems, Survival Is a Style, which bears out his singular vision of faith and doubt, mortality and the divine.

The conversation will be followed by a book signing and wine reception.

In this collection, Wiman’s many readers will recognize the musical and formal variety, the voice that can be tender and funny, credibly mystical and savagely skeptical. But there are many new notes in Survival Is a Style as well, including a moving elegy to the poet’s father, sharp observations and distillations of modern American life, and rangy poems that merge and juxtapose different modes of speech and thought.

Christian Wiman is the author of several books, including two memoirs, My Bright Abyss: Meditations of a Modern Believer (FSG, 2013) and He Held Radical Light: The Art of Faith, the Faith of Art (FSG, 2018); Every Riven Thing (FSG, 2010), winner of the Ambassador Book Award in poetry; Once in the West (FSG, 2014), a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist in poetry; and Stolen Air: Selected Poems of Osip Mandelstam. He teaches religion and literature at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music and Yale Divinity School.

W83 Ministry Center is the home of Redeemer West Side, a Christian congregation that seeks to be a church “not just for ourselves.” We believe that God’s grace restores people and communities for the good of the city.
