Book Launch: Ross Gay presents The Book of Delights: Essays
In conversation with Patrick Rosal
Wine reception to follow

Ross Gay, winner of the NBCC Award for Poetry for Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude, offers up a spirited collection of short lyric essays, written daily over a tumultuous year, reminding us of the purpose and pleasure of praising, extolling, and celebrating ordinary wonders. His is a meditation on delight that takes a clear-eyed view of the complexities, even the terrors, in his life, including living in America as a black man; the ecological and psychic violence of our consumer culture; the loss of those he loves. The Book of Delights is about our connection to the world, to each other, and the rewards that come from a life closely observed. Gay’s pieces serve as a powerful and necessary reminder that we can, and should, stake out a space in our lives for delight. Gay launches his new book with a reading and discussion with award-winning poet Patrick Rosal.
