This could be your first in-person reading since COVID, and what an event it will be — Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Jericho Brown.

Brown's latest collection, "The Tradition," explores Blackness, gayness, relationships and violence in poems that the New York Times called "resilient out of necessity, faithful to their account of survival, when survival is the hardest task of all."

Tickets for 150 socially distanced and masked people to attend in person are $20 each; tickets for the event livestreamed on Zoom are $10 each. Autographed copies are also available to order.

Event: 6 p.m., June 19, Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church, 511 Groveland Av., Mpls. Register at
