Nashville Review & Third Man Books Poetry Reading
Looking for some words to ward off this spell of early winter? This Sunday, Third Man Books and Nashville Review will be co-hosting a joint poetry reading at the Nashville Third Man Records shop on 7th Ave. The collaboration between NR, which is run by the writers at Vanderbilt’s MFA program, and the literary arm of Jack White’s label and bookshop promises to make for an evening of camaraderie, poetry, and a cross-section of Nashville’s different literary scenes.
The night’s slate of readers features three poets from the (digital) pages of Nashville Review – Ross White, Lupita Eyde-Tucker, and Deborah Allbritain – and Nashville Youth Poet Laureate Haviland Whiting. This fall, Third Man Books published Whiting’s debut collection, And What Would You Say if You Could, a collection of poems about coming of age as a black woman in the U.S.
The event is also a celebration of the 30th issue of Nashville Review. Doors and seating open at 4!
