Billy-Ray Belcourt | Ali Blythe | Adrienne Gruber
Following on his debut Twoism, Ali Blythe’s Hymnswitch takes up questions of gender, identity, and the moving target that is simply existing in one’s own skin.
A self-described hopeless romantic, Billy-Ray Belcourt’s NDN Coping Mechanisms examines forms, poetic and documentary, for queerness and indigeneity, always circling back to the basics of bodies existing in time and place.
In her third collection, Q & A, Adrienne Gruber embraces the darkness of the postpartum experience to look more closely at the very nature of humanity.
Join us in an examination of the poetic place where the foundations of identity can be broken open and examined; in a discussion of poetry as a process of deconstruction, of getting down to fundamentals, where the results can be both playful and unflinchingly demanding.
