Details

Upon suffering a computer-overuse injury, Liza Achilles fell in love with her physical therapist and began writing Shakespearean sonnets addressed to him. For one year, she continued writing candid poems, often with humorous twists, to chronicle her ever-changing love life. This sonnet sequence, TWO NOVEMBERS, carries the beauty and drama of an ancient poetic style into the 21st century. Liza Achilles will be in conversation with Mary Dempsey. The presentation will feature fun anecdotes, comedic interludes, love sonnet readings, and a Q&A with the audience. This event is free and open to the public. RSVP with People's Book on their event web page.
