The Rumpus Poetry Book Club has been discussing Dean Young’s Fall Higher this month, and given that Young had a heart transplant on the 15th, I’d basically assumed we were going to have to postpone. Nope. We’ll be chatting with him tomorrow, as planned. If you’re a member of the club, check your email for the URL and the password, and if you aren’t, well, keep an eye out for the transcript of the chat coming soon.

Brian Spears is Senior Poetry Editor of The Rumpus and the author of A Witness in Exile (Louisiana Literature Press, 2011). His poem “Upon Reading That Andromeda Will One Day Devour Triangulum and Come For Us Next” was featured in Season 9 of Motion Poems. More from this author →
