Eileen Myles: Why I Write

@ Chicago Humanities Festival


Opening Tuesday, October 13th, from 7PM - 8PM

Register: www.chicagohumanities.org/events/eileen-myles

In this time of social and political upheaval, poet and writer Eileen Myles is seeking to transcribe what feels like a series of ever changing moments into linguistic permanence. “Time itself has a kind of optic quality,” they note in their new book For Now (Why I Write), “it really takes so much time to become a writer and you have to be able to roll in time itself”. Join Myles for an intimate conversation about how the creative process can help us live in and through the present.

This week’s programs presented with the support of Southwest Airlines.
