Event Details


The Grolier Poetry Book Shop invites you to join us in a facilitated conversation of Claudia Rankine's 2014 New York Times bestselling book of poetry Citizen: An American Lyric. Our conversation will take place at the Grolier Poetry Book Shop on Saturday, February 10, from 4–6p.m., and will be led by Grolier proprietor, poet, and philosopher Ifeanyi Menkiti, who will share his insights and reflections of this important book, and facilitate the discussion. 

This conversation is part of a public dialogue in a dynamic project exploring the construction of race and identity in America, offered by ArtsEmerson and American Repertory Theater. Groups in Cambridge, Boston, and beyond are joining in this important conversation. There will be a public Dialogue with Claudia Rankine on March 4. 

All participants will be required to read the book in advance of the discussion. The Grolier has copies of the book available for purchase, at the Shop and online here . More information will be sent out from our facilitator, Ifeanyi Menkiti, before the discussion. We will also forward a list of additional readings and resources to all participants. 

We encourage you to sign up early as space is limited to 30 participants. You can call the Shop or sign up here.  We look forward to having you join us in this important discussion. This project is very important to the Grolier because it aligns with our mission of keeping poetry alive. 


“Can things move forward even between two people? If you have two people in the room, who claim they want to have the talk, they want to try and make things work, how do they do that? That’s a real question, not an intellectual exercise for me.”
•Claudia Rankine
