NationalSawdust+ presents the second installment of the new literary-music series by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon. The event features award-winning writers Jorie Graham, whose poetry “addresses the most urgent philosophical and political issues of the time” (The New York Times) and has garnered her a MacArthur Fellowship and a Pulitzer Prize; Colm Tóibín, the acclaimed novelist, playwright, journalist, critic, and poet; and trailblazing artist Laurie Anderson, author of the recent book All the Things I Lost in the Flood, who will perform. Presented in association with London Review of Books, Against the Grain is dedicated to making art that is equal to the contrariness and complexity of our moment. (The series continues on May 23.)
