The Tenth Muse with Tyehimba Jess


Tyehimba Jess, winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry for Olio, takes on a longstanding Poetry Center tradition, curating and introducing readings by three of his favorite poets: LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs, Douglas Kearney, and Tracie Morris. The evening culminates with a short reading by Jess himself, plus a musical performance of his work by Olithea Anglin, Meredith Wright, Melanie Dyer, Yohann Potico and pianist Janice Lowe, who wrote the composition.

Recorded on December 10, 2018, at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.
