Description

Sarah Heady will read from her newest book of poems, COMFORT (Spuyten Duyvil Publishing, 2022), a meditation on female solitude, agency, and relationship set on the prairies of the American West. COMFORT braids together found language from historical texts, including rural women’s magazines of the 1910s and 1920s and “booster” documents extolling the virtues of farming the Great Plains. Sarah will also read from “Holdings,” an essay collection-in-progress that investigates landscape, power, and class in the Hudson Valley. Raised in Dutchess County, New York and now living in San Francisco, Sarah will discuss what it means to write about place from a distance.
