Afterglow (A Dog Memoir). An evening with Eileen Myles

Afterglow (A Dog Memoir): a book launch, reading and conversation with Eileen Myles, Ruth Novaczek and Filipa Ramos, and a performance by Mira Calix

Serpentine Galleries presented an evening at Kings Place with Eileen Myles on the occasion of the publication of Myles’s latest book, Afterglow (A Dog Memoir). Throughout the evening, Myles, who will be reading from Afterglow, was joined by artist and filmmaker Ruth Novaczek and writer and editor Filipa Ramos, to discuss animals, companionship and loss. Afterglow (A Dog’s Memoir), Myles’ first foray into memoir, paints a kaleidoscopic portrait of a beloved confidant: the pit bull called Rosie. In 1990, Myles chose Rosie from a litter on the street, and their connection instantly became central to the writer’s life and work. The evening began with the diffusion version of sound artist Mira Calix’s 2003 piece Nunu, originally composed for orchestra and insects.
