Patricia Lockwood: Priestdaddy

Patricia Lockwood: Priestdaddy

Lawrence’s own ribald poet is back! Hear Lockwood read and talk about her latest book-a vivid, heartbreaking and funny memoir about having a married Catholic priest for a father. Lockwood pivots from the raunchy to the sublime, from the comic to the deeply serious, exploring issues of belief, belonging, and person-hood. Priestdaddy is an entertaining, unforgettable portrait of a deeply odd religious upbringing, and how one balances a hard-won identity with the weight of family and tradition.
