After taking part in the inaugural Universe in Verse, Rosanne Cash returns to Pioneer Works for an intimate evening of music and literature to launch her new album, She Remembers Everything — ten soulful and strong songs celebrating the eternal dance between love and loss, the art of finding solidity of spirit in a precarious world, how we rise when we fall short, and what it means to wrest beauty from the wreckage of the soul. I will be joining author A.M. Homes, poet, artist, and activist Staceyann Chin, and astrophysicist, author, and Pioneer Works Director of Sciences Janna Levin for a literary interlude, punctuating the music with readings of works by remarkable women like Adrienne Rich, Angela Davis, Ursula K. Le Guin, Joan Didion, Tracy K. Smith, Jane Hirshfield, and more.
