The second installment of Poetry Lab will investigate "The Changing Light at Sandover," James Merrill’s encyclopedic epic of the ouija board. Expect readings, divinations, and mirrors more than one; special guests may include Wallace Stevens, Maya Deren, and Ephraim himself. Join us for a night of conversation with the other world, and a lively reckoning with one of the last century’s great poems.
