Join us for a poetry reading with Skidmore College professor Dan Curley, as he celebrates his book "Conditional Future Perfect."
"Conditional Future Perfect," Dan Curley’s first book of poetry, is richly comic and subtly serious. The forty-eight poems in this volume invite us to share the daily wonders and blunders of family life, the ephemeral feelings and lasting lessons of travel (in Italy, mostly Rome), and a range of elegies and other life stories that take us outside of ourselves. In poem after poem, Curley is thoughtful, conversational, and witty. This is accessible poetry of the everyday that nevertheless lifts us to the heights of comprehension, revealing our inevitable follies and essential dignity.
