Join us to launch Robert Wood’s new collection of essays, Suburbanism. Hosted by Claudia Mancini with readings by Priya Kahlon and Karen Escobar, Robert will be interviewed by Danae Gibson. This will be an evening to talk about suburban lifestyles, and, to drink, eat, and think about our place in the world. There will be books to buy on the night.


About Suburbanism

Suburbanism is a book of twelve essays on contemporary poetry. Robert Wood looks at New York, consumerism, lifestyle, birds, the Western Pilbara, diaspora, theorising, India, republics, malls, and supermarkets. He offers a fresh take on poetry as it relates to the suburbs, encouraging the reader to reflect on meaning in our own time, and to think about the field of New World Literature.
