Jerri Dell will talk about her new book, Blood too bright: Floyd Dell remembers Edna St. Vincent Millay. Floyd Dell was a writer and editor of the radical Masses magazine when he met a newcomer to bohemian life in Greenwich Village, the “girl poet,” Edna St. Vincent Millay. One hundred years later, his granddaughter, Jerri discovered hundreds of handwritten letters along with an unpublished memoir about Floyd’s love affair with Millay. She turned that memoir and the letters into Blood Too Bright, her vision of the book that her grandfather never published.
Admission is free and everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served.
