Literary Partners Program: Litmus Press “Actualities” reading with collaborators Norma Cole & Marina Adams

Sep 17, 2015 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Actualities cover

The first reading of Actualities, the collaborative book from poet Norma Cole and artist Marina Adams. Adams echoes the spareness of Cole’s language with delicate lines that contour muscular negative spaces, sometimes stark and densely foreboding, sometimes luxuriant with color. Norma Cole dialogues with Marina Adams with syncopated poems concerned with fragmentation, transformation, love, precarity, and the tenuousness of kinship between places, things, and being. Of the collaboration, Cole says, “In a sense, we’ve been collaborating for 30 years. Ever since we first met, in San Francisco, we were concerned not just with each other’s finished work, but in the way we work, the actual coming into being.”

This event is made possible in part through the Poets House Literary Partners Program.
