Celebrated and renowned author Eileen Myles has made a wealth of literary and poetic work in their long career. Now, Myles has crafted a multidimensional and loving memoir of their beloved Pitbull, Rosie.

From the moment Myles picked her from a litter in 1990, Rosie had been essential part of Myles' life and work. Myles' devotion to the dog never waned in the sixteen years they were together. Beginning with the void created in Myles' heart after the death of Rosie, Afterglow gives us an intimate and special account of the relationship between pet and pet-owner. Through this storytelling, we witness Myles’s experiences with intimacy and spirituality, celebrity and politics, alcoholism and recovery, fathers and family history, as well as the fantastical myths we spin to get to the heart of grief. Afterglow (a dog memoir) shows all that it can mean when we devote our existence to a dog.

Come join us in the Rare Book Room as Eileen Myles shares thoughts from their new book Afterglow.

Admission Options: Buy a copy of Afterglow or a $15 gift card to attend. Please note that payment is required for all online event orders at the time of checkout. The event will be located in the Strand's 3rd floor Rare Book Room at our store at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.
