NationalSawdust+ presents the first installment of Paul Muldoon‘s Against the Grain, featuring literary luminaries Jennifer Egan and Kevin Young and the pioneering electronic duo Matmos. Egan’s novels include Manhattan Beach and A Visit from the Goon Squad. Young, who serves as director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, has authored more than thirteen books of poetry and prose, most recently Brown and Bunk: The Rise of Hoaxes, Humbug, Plagiarists, Phonies, Post-Facts, and Fake News.
This new literary-music series, presented in association with London Review of Books, features pairings of cutting-edge poets, prose fiction writers, multi-media practitioners, mirth-merchants, political commentators, and musical performers — all of them dedicated to making art that is equal to the contrariness and complexity of our moment. Each edition of the Against the Grain, curated by the Pulitzer Prize-winning Irish poet, will includes a collaborative work and a one-on-one conversation on a provocative topic.Buy tickets/get more info now
