Hive Mind Book Club with Philip Schaefer & David Baker
Oct 6, 2017, 12:00 pm
The Hive Mind Book Club presents a discussion with authors David Baker and Philip Schaefer. Schaefer’s collection, Bad Summon, was the 2016 Agha Shahid Ali Poetry Prize winner and Baker was the judge who selected Schaefer’s book.
Bad Summon explores the relationship between the majesty of nature and the quiet violence humans inflict upon themselves and others. The poems are dipped in loss, traveling between death and mountains, romance and rivers. They are addicted to the truth of experience and the energy behind regret. Bad Summon conjures its own ghost. According to David Baker, the judge who selected the winning manuscript, this is a “surprising, coherent, original collection of lyric poems. I felt peril, heartbreak, catastrophe, sorrow, genuine soulfulness. It’s also funny, yet its humor is not comic but possesses a terrible gravity.” This is a volume every poetry lover will want to explore.
Philip Schaefer is the author of three chapbooks, two cowritten with friend and poet Jeff Whitney. He won the Meridian Editor’s Prize in poetry in 2016. He received his MFA from the University of Montana in Missoula.
This event is made possible with support from Guest Writers Series, the Salt Lake City Arts Council and Utah Humanities.
