Book Release For Devin Kelly's In This Quiet Church of Night, I Say Amen

  • DTUT Bar & Cafe 1744 2nd Avenue New York, NY, 10128 United States (map)

Caits' blurb for Devin's book: Devin Kelly's visceral poems thrust us into the rich journey of growing up, confronting the ause and effect of the ordinary violence we inherit and internalize. They accuse with the kindest finger, locating what makes and breaks a family, the turbulence of masculinity, the tender ache of loss, memories that scar and shape into a searching conscience. The question that surfaced over and over while reading: in myself, in others-- what can and should be forgiven? In Devin's Quiet Church of Night, the poems whisper that perhaps the answer is everything, to which I am relieved and I am grateful and I say again and again: amen.
