Christ Church Episcopal and Mockingbird Ministries will host An Evening with Christian Wiman. “And I Was Alive: Faith in a Faithless Time,” a lecture and Q&A with the poet, will be held in the Christ Church Sanctuary at 7 PM on March 6, 2013 with a reception to follow.
Wiman is the author of three well-received books of poetry, most recently Every Riven Thing, which The New Yorker ranked among the best poetry collections of 2010. In April 2013, he will publish My Bright Abyss: Meditations of a Modern Believer. Wiman’s work has also appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Harper’s, The American Scholar, and The New York Times Book Review. Having served as the editor of Poetry Magazine for a decade, Wiman recently announced that he will leave this position to join the faculty of the Yale Institute of Sacred Music and Yale Divinity School.
