Event Details

One of the most widely read modern poets, Rainer Maria Rilke (1875–1926) has influenced generations of writers and served as a trusted guide for countless others on the importance of looking within to find peace in a hectic world. From The Book of Hours to his classic Letters to a Young Poet, his writings have only gained more relevance with time, and his observations are amazingly prescient.

Now, for the first time, A Year with Rilke provides a reading from Rilke for every day of the year. From his luminous poetry, to his piercing prose, and even his intimate letters and journals, editors Joanna Macy and Anita Barrows provide new translations in a collection that reveals the depth and breadth of Rilke’s acclaimed work.

This evening is an opportunity to hear a selection of these daily readings, and to celebrate a lovely book that will make a wonderful gift this holiday season
