09.28.2017 | Eileen Myles signs and discusses “Afterglow (a dog memoir)” | Free

September 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Left Bank Books welcomes acclaimed poet and author Eileen Myles, who will sign and discuss her new book, “Afterglow (a dog memoir)”!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “Afterglow” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

Eileen Myles’ newest book paints a kaleidoscopic portrait of a beloved confidant: the pit bull called Rosie. In 1990, Myles chose Rosie from a litter on the street, and their connection instantly became central to the writer’s life and work. During the course of their sixteen years together, Myles was madly devoted to the dog’s wellbeing, especially in her final days. Starting from the emptiness following Rosie’s death, “Afterglow (a dog memoir) “launches a heartfelt and fabulist investigation into the true nature of the bond between pet and pet-owner.
