Literary Partners Program: Kweli International Literary Festival

Nikky Finney on Love Child’s Hotbed of Occasional Poetry with Crystal Wilkinson

Jul 18, 2020 | 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

This opening keynote conversation between Nikky Finney and Crystal Wilkinson will focus on sisterhood, their decades-long friendship, and women writers in the time of COVID-19. ‟Come see us just be girls,” said Crystal Wilkinson. ‟We are going to pretend y’all aren’t there and just talk about our lives and work. We’ll try not to share too many secrets.”

Love Child’s Hotbed of Occasional Poetry is a twenty-first-century paean to the sterling love songs humming throughout four hundred years of Black American life. National Book Award winner Nikky Finney’s fifth collection punctuates the occasional lyric with a new language of “docu-poetry.”

This event is made possible by Poets House’s Literary Partners program.
