Reading at Other Books in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, Sunday August 13th. Facebook Event Page.
Spend the 2nd Sunday of August w/ intergalactic poets, Kay Ulanday Barrett, Elisabeth Houston, Micah Tasaka, Vickie Vertiz and Angela Peñaredondo. Join us as we mark Kay’s west coast visit to celebrate his first collection of poetry, When the Chant Comes (Topside Heliotrope). We welcome all to spend time with us in a creative and inclusive space as we navigate and intuitively interrupt (through poetry and performance) a time when Mercury stations retrograde, traversing a slew of other planetary and astrological alignments. At times of upheaval and distress, it becomes even more important for poc and qtpoc artists to hold down spaces for incantation, performance, and revelation in order to stargaze our way into past, future and other realms.
