Patricia Lockwood: Priestdaddy 

When: Sat., June 3, 7 p.m. 2017
Price: free

Until Kenneth Goldsmith turned Michael Brown's autopsy into a conceptual poem in 2015 and just about burned down the Internet, Patricia Lockwood's "Rape Joke," going viral from The Awl in 2013, made a bigger splash than any other poem in recent memory. "The Missouri-based poet has reinvented how we talk about rape," wrote The Guardian. "She has casually reawakened a generation's interest in poetry. ... And she may well be the first person with an actual sense of humor to write an attack on rape jokes. Or is it actually a defense of rape jokes? Ah, you see, that's why it's so clever." A Twitter celeb and the author of two fine poetry collections, Lockwood comes to Durham with her acclaimed new memoir, Priestdaddy, about her upbringing as the daughter of a charismatic Lutheran turned Catholic minister. —Brian Howe
