(In Person at mk2 Bibliothèque) Eileen Myles on Chelsea Girls

Thu September 15 @ 20 h 00 min - 21 h 00 min

Celebrated artist and poet Eileen Myles speaks with journalist Elisabeth Philippe on Chelsea Girls at the mk2 Bibliothèque. The American Library in Paris is co-sponsoring this event.

Poet Eileen Myles will be speaking at the mk2 Bibliothèque as part of the mk2 Institut conferences. Myles will be presenting their work Chelsea Girls, originally published in 1994 and triumphantly republished in 2015. Acclaimed as a tour-de-force of literary liberty, the book is both addictive and magistral. An iconoclast, Eileen Myles is one of the most celebrated living authors in the United States. With a poetic power reminiscent of Patti Smith, Myles, like Smith, fled catholic, working class America for the allures of New York life: anger, poetry, drugs, and women. Chelsea Girls was translated into French by Héloïse Esquié and published by Editions du Sous-Sol in 2022.

The American Library in Paris will be co-sponsoring this event.
