David Berman reads @ the Headquarters Library @ 6pm.
Nashville resident David Berman occupies a unique spot in American writing.Â This is both truism and understatement. Â His first and only book of poetry (Actual Air) was published to high praise in 1999, but he has yet to produce a followup.Â He dismantled his band, the Silver Jews, at the zenith of their popularity after 6 stunning albums of impressionistic county music.Â He publicly disassociated himself from his conservative lobbyist father, who Berman describes as â€œa despicable man. My father is a sort of human molestor.â€
