We find our own stories in Eve Hoffman’s poetry—affirming, bearing witness both intimate and epic in the time flow of the second half of the twentieth century.

Organize a reading and discussion of MEMORY & COMPLICITY 

  1. Identify 1 or 2 co-hosts. Don’t need to know Eve.
  2. Locate a place and set time – library, church/synagogue/mosque, someone’s home, bookstore, art gallery, as program for an already scheduled event, e.g. Rotary, be creative.
  3. Get e-mail invitation designed specific to your event from Eve or design your own.
  4. Send e-mail invitations with personal note. Eve can also do e-blast to her list and put info in newsletter (if in a public place).
  5. Re-send invitation and reminder a few days before event.
  6. Organize drinks and light food.
  7. Set up table for sales and signing books

Approximately half hour after starting time (depends on the group) Eve will read for 20-30 minutes from MEMORY & COMPLICITY tailored to audience. Reading followed by discussion and conversation.
