DIESEL, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes Matthew Zapruder to the store to discuss Why Poetry on Tuesday, August 29th at 7:00pm. Joining him in conversation will be fellow poet, David Roderick. In Why Poetry, award-winning poet Matthew Zapruder takes on what it is that poetry -- and poetry alone -- can do. Zapruder argues that the way we have been taught to read poetry is the very thing that prevents us from enjoying it.
