A great crowd of Lax fans and other poetry lovers showed up at Poets House in NYC on November 30 to listen to biographer Michael N. McGregor and poets John Beer and Stacey Tran read and talk about his work. Now, Poets House has made the entire evening available for free on their website. Just click here and scroll down to “Related Audio.”
You’ll hear presentations on Lax’s life and development as a poet, the rhythms and musicality in his work, and similarities between his approach and those of artists in other media. The recording includes discussion among the panel members and their answers to audience questions too.
