Poetry Reading on 10/13 with SJU Alum Erik Fuhrer and Steve Mentz

Here’s an Instagram link to a poetry reading on Wed night 10/13 on Instagram Live.

Hosted by Wren Hanks (@reallytruleyashark), the event will celebrate the publication

Eye, Apocalypse, which is Erik’s new book of poetry and collage just published by Spuyten Duyvil Press. Steve Mentz will also read a few poems, including one inspired by his earlier encounter with Erik’s poems in manuscript.

Here’s what I have to say about Eye, Apocalypse on the back cover —

We all live with fear, and secretly desire the apocalypse. But what if that revealing spirit of doom could speak to us, seduce us, and leave us trailing along in its wake? Erik Fuhrer’s book of poems present the apocalypse as sullen teen and revelatory voice, painful music and just-vanished lover. These poems animate our catastrophic present and shine light onto the ways we are learning to live now.
