Becoming Philadelphia: Geffrey Davis

Tue, November 12, 2019 6:30 P.M.
Lucien E. Blackwell West Philadelphia Regional Library

Cost: FREE

Join the Free Library of Philadelphia and First Person Arts for a festival series of poetry readings and story circles that lift up stories of migration and put storytelling at the heart of the library. Hear some of the most dynamic poets of our day explore what it means to leave one home to make another in a new place, then share your own story in a circle of neighbors.

A reading by poet Geffrey Davis will be followed by a facilitated story circle and book signing. Geffrey Davis is the author of Night Angler, winner of the 2018 James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets, and Revising the Storm, winner of the 2013 A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize. He also coauthored the chapbook Begotten (2016) with LA-based poet F. Douglas Brown. A native of the Pacific Northwest, Davis lives with his family in Fayetteville, AR.
