Danniel Schoonebeek, with Sarah Gerard
February 1, 2017, 7:00 PM
In his new poetry collection, Trebuchet, Danniel Schoonebeek directly and radically tackles contemporary politics. Addressing such topics as gun violence, poverty, fascism, surveillance, white privilege, American history, and torture, Schoonebeek uses slang and jargon, white space, and precise rhythms to capture the modern moment. Danniel will be joined by Sarah Gerard for a night of reading and conversation.
