How The Rumpus Poetry Book Club works: Every month we’ll choose a forthcoming poetry book, not yet available to the public. At the end of the month, we’ll host an exclusive online discussion with the book club and the author. We’ll publish an edited version of the discussion on The Rumpus the following month (like this).
Which poets do we chat with? We’ve featured poets like Tracy K. Smith, Jericho Brown, Solmaz Sharif, Kaveh Akbar, Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Natasha Tretheway, Franny Choi, Eve Ewing, Hanif Abdurraqib, Danez Smith, and t’ai freedom ford. Upcoming poets include Ariel Francisco, Heather McHugh, Thea Matthews, Benjamin Garcia, Sumita Chakraborty, Vijay Seshadri, Molly Spencer, and more!
