Broadway Books is pleased to host a virtual event with author John Brehm discussing his most recent book, The Dharma of Poetry, with Heather Sellers.
In The Dharma of Poetry, Brehm shows how poems can be a source of wisdom and an entry into spiritual practice and how poems can open up new ways of thinking, feeling, and being in the world that anyone engaged in spiritual practice--or wishing to live a more mindful life--might want to emulate.
This collection of lively, elegantly written essays offers in-depth explorations of twenty poems. It also offers poetry-related meditations and writing prompts that invite readers to directly engage with the poems and ideas discussed in the book and expand their own practice of poetry. A stand-alone book, it also serves as a companion to the author's acclaimed anthology, The Poetry of Impermanence, Mindfulness, and Joy,
John Brehm is the author of three books of poetry: Sea of Faith, Help Is on the Way, and No Day at the Beach. His poems have appeared in Poetry, The Sun, The Gettysburg Review, The Writer's Almanac, Plume, Best American Poetry, The Norton Introduction to Literature, and many other journals and anthologies. He teaches poetry and meditation classes in Portland and in Denver. He lives in Portland with his wife, Alice Boyd, and their three cats.
Heather Sellers is the author of the story collection Georgia under Water and the memoir You Don’t Look Like Anyone I Know, as well as several books on writing. She is also a novelist, poet, children's book author, and teacher. She has contributed poems and essays to On the Seawall, The New York Times, The Sun, Tin House, Prairie Schooner, and other publications. She also has a piece in the anthology Eat Joy: Stories & Comfort Food from 31 Celebrated Writers. Currently she is a faculty member in the undergraduate and MFA creative writing programs at the University of South Florida. Her book Field Notes from the Flood Zone is forthcoming from BOA in May 2022.
