LACY SOTO | DATE 5/14/2022
Artbook @ Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles Bookstore presents the launch of Christopher Soto's 'Diaries of a Terrorist'
Saturday, May 14 at 2 PM, Artbook @ Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles Bookstore presents a book signing and launch with Diaries of a Terrorist author Christopher Soto. This debut poetry collection demands the abolition of policing and human caging. In Diaries of a Terrorist, Soto uses the “we” pronoun to emphasize that police violence happens not only to individuals, but to whole communities. Soto's poetics open the imagination towards possibilities of existence beyond the status quo. Soto asks, “Who do we call terrorist, & why”? These political surrealist poems shift between gut-wrenching vulnerability, laugh-aloud humor and unapologetic queer punk raunchiness. Soto will be joined by Jacob Tobia, Justin Torres, Vickie Vértiz, Jos Charles and UCLA Cops Off Campus. Pre-order a signed copy here.
