Join them for a celebration of Larry Eigner’s Selected Poems on what would be his 90th birthday.
Larry Eigner (August 7, 1927, Swampscott, MA – February 3, 1996, Berkeley, CA) began writing poetry at age eight and was first published at age nine. Revered by poets and artists across a broad spectrum of generations and schools, Eigner’s remarkably moving poetry was created through enormous effort: because of severe physical disabilities, he produced his texts by typing with only one index finger and thumb on a 1940 Royal manual typewriter, creating a body of work that is unparalleled in its originality.
