Author Talk | The Knocking Brain: Poetry and Mental Health

Wednesday, 15th November 2023 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

New Athenaeum Theatre, 23 The Octagon

A conversation about poetry and mental health with Rushi Vyas and Claire Lacey.

Poets Claire Lacey (they/them) and Rushi Vyas (he/him) put their work in conversation with one another. Having written poetry in the aftermath of traumatic brain injury and suicide bereavement, respectively, Claire and Rushi turn to poetry to find expression for the grief and loneliness that accompany life changing events. Though this conversation will plumb into heavy territory, it will be approached with gentleness and compassion between these two poets, friends, and collaborators.
