Event 61


Poet, novelist, performer, librettist, one-time presidential candidate and counter-cultural icon, Eileen Myles, has lived a life artfully engaged with the times – evident in their autobiographical novel Chelsea Girls, which recounts life in the Lower East Side of New York in the 60s and 70s, and in the poetry collection I Must Be Living Twice: New & Selected Poems 1974-2014, as well as in their latest work Afterglow, a memoir of a dog of which The Guardian said, β€œFor all its dog-leg turns, there is no putting down of Rosie or of this book.” Join this singular New York artist, in conversation with Ian Wedde.

Supported by Sarah Broom Poetry Trust.

Eileen Myles will no longer be appearing at the Auckland Writers Festival. Ticket holders should contact Ticketmaster on or 09 970 9700 to arrange exchanges or refunds as appropriate.
