Event description

Description


Starting on October 13, 2016, Stephen Vincent, through a combination of 100 abstract ink drawings and journal entries, constructed an imaginative history of the final three months of the Obama administration. In a creative journey which included a continental crossing of 10,000 miles on the train, he sought to register the private and public pulse of the country as we moved from the Obama era towards the one now being defined now by You Know Who. This is a rich visual and literary document of the dramatic vicissitudes of one of the most troubling transitions in recent American history. Vincent will present and discuss his new book.

Hilton Obenzinger, poet, activist, teacher, will be reading from Dogs Playing Poker and other works. Hilton was born in Brooklyn in 1947. He is the author of eight books, including This Passover Or The Next I Will Never Be in Jerusalem (1980), "a poetic interrogation of the Zionist nation of Israel". His recent book How We Write: The Varieties of Writing Experience is based on the series of “How I Write” public conversations with faculty and other writers conducted by Hilton Obenzinger at Stanford University.
