Queer Poets of Color: Nepantla Anthology Anniversary Poetry Reading & Conversation at MoMA PS1 Book Space

Join Artbook Saturday, April 27, from 3–5 PM in the MoMA PS1 Book Space for a poetry reading and conversation to mark the one-year anniversary of Nepantla Anthology Dedicated to Queer Poets of Color (Nightboat Books, 2018), the first major literary anthology of its kind. The anthology gathers queer poets of color throughout U.S. history and their contemporaries today. A book signing will follow. To pre-order signed copies, email booksmomaps1@artbook.com.

Queer Poets of Color: Nepantla Anthology Anniversary Poetry Reading & Conversation at MoMA PS1 Book Space

Presented by Wendy’s Subway and Nepantla editor Christopher Soto, the event considers forms of mentorship, kinship and lineage. Contributors to the anthology Amber Atiya, Denice Frohman, t’ai freedom ford and Donika Kelly share work by a queer poet of color they consider a literary mentor or interlocutor, followed by a reading of their own writing. Readings are followed by a conversation with editor Christopher Soto.

Queer Poets of Color: Nepantla Anthology Anniversary is organized with Wendy’s Subway as part of The Quick and the Dead, a yearlong, multi-phase project that highlights the life, work and legacy of a deceased writer by bridging their work to that of contemporary practitioners. In its inaugural year, the program focuses on the life and work of poet, educator and activist Audre Lorde (1934–1992). The Quick and the Dead seeks to mobilize the creative and pedagogical potential of focused engagement with a single author through sustained reflection across a variety of public events and opportunities for cross-disciplinary encounters. The Quick and the Dead is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC) and Humanities New York with Support from the National Endowment from the Humanities.

This event is free and open to the public.

E-mail booksmomaps1@artbook.com to order a signed copy of Queer Poets of Color.
