Tom Sleigh & Abby Seiff: Literati Bookstore At Home with Literati.
These 2 writers discuss (via Zoom) their new work and their approaches to writing about a changing world. Sleigh’s new poetry collection The King’s Touch explores how language can recuperate a sense of a future under the conditions of violence, social unrest, and global anxiety about the fate of the planet. Seiff’s nonfiction Troubling the Water: A Dying Lake and a Vanishing World in Cambodia presents an intimate account of one of the world's most productive inland fisheries, and how the rapid destruction of a single lake in Cambodia is upending the lives of millions.
