Pierre Reverdy at McNally Jackson

As part of the NYRB Classics and McNally Jackson Books event series, we will be celebrating the poetry of Pierre Reverdy, and the publication of a new selection of English translations by many of Americas best translators and poets.

The editor of the new book, Mary Ann Caws, along with Mark Polizzotti, Geoffrey O’Brien, Richard Sieburth, and Paul Auster will read from the new collection, and discuss Reverdy’s role in the art scene around Paris (really Monmartre) in the early part of the 20th century, and his continued influence among the New York School, introduced by the immortal Frank O’Hara’s lines: “My heart is in my/pocket. It is Poems by Pierre Reverdy.”
