Artist Talk: Writer-in-Residence Lightsey Darst

Lightsey Darst, dance critic, poet, and author of Find the Girl (Coffee House Press, 2010) and the forthcoming Dance (September 2013), will present new work inspired by her two-week writer’s residency in the Walker Art Center’s resource library. Join Darst and Walker archivist Jill Vuchetich in a discussion about her stint inside one of the country’s largest museum library collections of contemporary art monographs, ephemera, and artists’ books.

Darst is the first writer-in-residence in the Writers and Readers Library Residency Program, part of Coffee House Press’s Books in Action initiative. This new program aims to create a body of work that will inspire a broader public to engage with their local libraries in new and meaningful ways and encourages artists and the general public to think about libraries as creative spaces.
