Join us for a special reading event with Visiting Writer Ross Gay, The Porch’s guest of honor at our 2024 annual fundraiser and 10th anniversary celebration.

In addition to his poetry, Gay has released three collections of essays—The Book of Delights was a 2019 New York Times bestseller; Inciting Joy followed in 2022, and his newest collection, The Book of (More) Delights arrived in bookstores in September 2023.
