CANCELED Library Live at Labyrinth: Lewis Hyde: “A Primer for Forgetting: Getting Past the Past”

March 10, 2020, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

What if forgetfulness were seen not as something to fear but as a blessing, a balm, a path to peace and rebirth? The author discusses his book which offers a playful and inspiring defense of forgetfulness by exploring the healing effect it can have on the human psyche.

Hyde is a poet, essayist, translator, and cultural critic. He is the author of “The Gift,” “Trickster Makes This World,” and “Common as Air.” A MacArthur Fellow and former director of undergraduate creative writing at Harvard University, Hyde taught creative writing and American literature for many years at Kenyon College.


Presented in partnership with Labyrinth Books.
