Eileen Myles hosted St Hilda's Feminist Salon

12th March 2018
Eileen Myles reading from 'Afterglow'.

We were delighted to welcome renowned New York poet, essayist, novelist and screenwriter, Eileen Myles, who hosted our Feminist Salon on 9 March 2018.

Myles read from their new book, Afterglow (a dog memoir) before leading a discussion and answering questions from the audience in their characteristically original and riveting way.  Afterglow, Myles's first foray into memoir, paints a kaleidoscopic portrait of their beloved confidante, their dog Rosie.  In Myles' words, the reason they are a writer is that no one can stop them- 'you become autonomous.' Follow the full discussion with the audience on Twitter @hildasfemsalon. The full recording will be available shortly. Listen here.
