The St. Louis County Library Foundation, HEC Media, the Favorite Author Series, St. Louis Poetry Center, and Left Bank Books present Award-Winning Poet and Essayist, Ross Gay, author of “Inciting Joy: Essays.”


 In these gorgeously written and timely pieces, National Book Critics Circle Award-winning poet and bestselling author Ross Gay considers the joy we incite when we care for each other, especially during life’s inevitable hardships. Throughout “Inciting Joy,” he explores how we can practice recognizing that connection and expand it. In an era when divisive voices take up so much air space, “Inciting Joy”offers a vital alternative: What might be possible if we turn our attention to what brings us together, to what we love? Full of energy, curiosity, and compassion, “Inciting Joy” is essential reading from one of our most brilliant writers.
