Sunday, November 20, 2016 @ 5:00 am
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132 United States
A finalist for the National Book Award, Monica Youn’s book of poetry, Blackacre, the author explores questions of racial identity, culpability, bereavement, fertility and barrenness as she attempts to understand her own desire—her own struggle—to conceive a child. In Joy Harjo’s long-awaited collection, Conflict Resolution for Holy Beings, the joys and struggles of the everyday are played against the grinding politics of being human. Amit Majmudar‘s Dothead is an exploration of identity, a satisfying cultural critique, and an experiment of language. Aracelis Girmay’s the black maria presents hope and a call to action as we work to address the many political and racial injustices facing us today.
