Live From Prairie Lights: Ed Pavlic

Ed Pavlic will talk about the importance of black music to the politics of James Baldwin's life and work as he discusses his book Who Can Afford to Improvise?: James Baldwin and Black Music.

Ed Pavlic is author of seven collections of poems and two critical books. He is most recently the author of Lyric and the Listener, Let’s Let That Are Not Yet: Inferno, and Visiting Hours at the Color Line. He lives in Athens, Georgia, and teaches in the PhD Program in Creative Writing/English at the University of Georgia.

"Who Can Afford to Improvise is a tour de force from one of our premier Baldwin scholars. Ed Pavlic's brilliantly insightful meditation on black music and culture and Baldwin's centrality to that tradition is a must-read." —Peniel E. Joseph
