Please join us for a poetry reading by Christian Bök on Thursday, November 1, 4 pm. This reading is co-sponsored by the Beinecke Library’s Modern Books and Manuscripts Collection and the Beinecke Library-Whitney Humanities Center Working Group in Contemporary Poetry. The event is free and open to the public. The Beinecke Library is located at 121 Wall Street, New Haven.
Canadian experimental poet Christian Bök is the author of books including Crystallography, a pataphysical encyclopedia, Eunoia, a lipogram that uses only one vowel in each of its five chapters, and Pataphysics: The Poetics of an Imaginary Science. Crystallography was nominated for the Gerald Lampert Award for Best Poetic Debut and Eunoia, the best-selling Canadian poetry book of all time, was awarded the Griffin Poetry Prize in 2002. His conceptual artwork has appeared at the Marianne Boesky Gallery in New York City as part of the exhibit Poetry Plastique. He is a professor at the University of Calgary.
