London on The Tyranny of Milk

Friday, March 25, 2011 - 2:00pm

Visiting Lecturer in English Sara London recently read from her book of poems The Tyranny of Milk at the Odyssey Bookshop. The book’s title poem, London explains, is about a pair of over-lactating cows who stop by a family’s home for Shabbat dinner. The book's other poems cover a wide range of ideas, from family to memory and many other things in between.

“Poetry,” London says, “is one of the oldest forms of singing about our lives.”
