December 5th, 6-9 PM, FREE. ARC Studios and Gallery, SF
Hang with our own Shailja Patel at Kearny Street Workshop’s Ladies Who’ve Launched party!
KSW and APICC celebrate the recent releases of innovative books by poets Shailja Patel and Barbara Jane Reyes with a reading and party! Patel’s Migritude puts her celebrated solo performance into print form, unpacking mothers, migration, violence, and empire, while unpacking the poet’s trunk of saris. Reyes’ Diwata communes with Filipino and Western fairies and demons, speaking through their voices and trying to understand the cultural hinges on which immigrant dreams and nightmares swing.
There will be refreshments, and a chance to buy Migritude and Diwata, as well as other books from Kaya Press, APICC, and KSW merchandise.
