Literary Partners Program: Launch Party and Reading for Ryan Black’s The Tenant of Fire

Sep 27, 2019 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

In poems on the homecoming of Vietnam vets, the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, and the firebombing of Malcolm X’s East Elmhurst house, Ryan Black’s The Tenant of Fire explores how and why the plurality of a place like Queens—where nearly two hundred languages are spoken—is viewed as a threat to national security.

Please join the University of Pittsburgh Press in celebrating the publication of The Tenant of Fire, winner of the 2018 Agnes Lynch Starrett Prize.

Light refreshments will follow a reading by Esther Lin, Sameer Pandya, Ciaran Berry, and Ryan Black.

This event is made possible through Poets House’s Literary Partners program. Poets House is an ADA accessible facility.

Admission Free and open to the public Sponsored By University of Pittsburgh Press
