A Reading and Conversation with Adrian Matejka: Somebody Else Stole the World
Sunday, November 21 @ 2:00 pm
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, Fl 33132 United States
The poems in Adrian Matejka’s newest and fifth collection, Somebody Else Sold the World, meditate on the ways we exist in an uncontrollable world: in love and its aftermaths, in families that divide themselves, in protest-filled streets, in isolation as routines become obsolete because of lockdown orders and curfews. Somebody Else uses past and future touchstones like pop songs, love notes, and imaginary gossip to illuminate those moments of splendor that persist even in exhaustion. These poems show that there are many possibilities of brightness and hope, even in the middle of pandemics and revolutions. Moderated by Nicole Tallman, director of legislative affairs and poetry ambassador for Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.
