On Thursday, December 6th, 2018, The Merwin Conservancy presented an intimate evening with LEWIS HYDE, author of THE GIFT, MacArthur Fellow and scholar in conversation with MATTHEW ZAPRUDER, accomplished poet, translator and former poetry editor of The New York Times. Hyde and Zapruder came together in The Green Room, an environmental and literary salon series that is hosted by the Conservancy and fosters a reverence for language, nature, and imagination. The duo shared excerpts of their own writing along with the work of those who have inspired them (including poetry by Conservancy founder W.S. Merwin), and engaged in spontaneous conversation examining the nature of creativity.
This evening was generously presented by FIM Group with support from Atherton Family Foundation.
