On Sunday, April 17, the award-winning poet Anne Carson will present a staged reading of her full-length poem, Lecture on the History of Skywriting, at the Whitney. The reading will be followed by a conversation between Carson and Faisal bin Ali Jaber, an engineer from Yemen whose brother-in-law Salem and nephew Waleed were killed by a U.S. drone strike in 2012.
