McNally Jackson Books Seaport and Primary Information present Mirene Arsanios, Constance DeJong and Annie-B Parson

Thursday, January 19 at 7 PM, McNally Jackson Books Seaport and Primary Information present a reading and discussion with Mirene Arsanios, Constance DeJong and Annie-B Parson. Drawing from their interdisciplinary and experimental approaches to performance, choreography, language, translation and fiction, Arsanios, DeJong and Parson will read from selected work, opening onto a discussion moderated by Rachel Valinsky.

In July 2022, Primary Information released Constance DeJong's Reader, the first anthology to gather a diverse body of writing. Spanning from the 1980s to the present, Reader features eighteen works by DeJong, including out-of-print and previously unpublished fiction, as well as texts emanating from her new media sculptures, sound works, video works, and public art commissions.

Joining DeJong for this event are:

Mirene Arsanios, author of The Autobiography of a Language: Essays and Stories, published by Futurepoem in Fall 2022, an autofictional and essayistic meditation on language, translation, mother tongues and the intersecting forces of colonialism, class and gender.

Annie B-Parson's The Choreography of Everyday Life, released by Verso in October 2022, translates the components of dance—time, proximity, space, motion, and tone—into texts, and considers how everyday movement creates the wider world.

Doors will open at 6:30 PM and attendance is on a first-come basis.
The conversation will begin promptly at 7 PM and is free.
Books will be on hand for purchase.
