Moonstone Gold Presents:

A special series of ticketed interviews and readings – single program ticket: $15.00 , Series Subscription (Three Programs): $35.00

Sunday September 13, 2015 – 3pm

“Major Jackson’s fourth collection of poetry, Roll Deep, juxtaposes the physical and the metaphysical, the external and the internal where the landscape and the mind of the poet converge until time bends. The imagery travels through a timely multiplicity, always surefooted and attuned, but never outdistancing the natural truth in this cosmopolitan voice. The poet writes the world he encounters, and imagines, with playfully deep interplay. The music in the language of Roll Deep is seductively straightforward, and each body-brain poem here puts genius squarely on the line.”
— Yusef Komunyakaa
