Literary Partners Program: Playful Procedures—A Poetry Provocation of Bourgeois Normalities
Feb 8, 2020 | 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Liora Mondlak and Don Hogle read back and forth in a mixtape of their poems.
Liora Mondlak is a poet and visual artist. Her poetry has been published in various journals, and her artwork has been exhibited in the U.S., Latin America, and Europe. Sensory memories of Mexico City, where she grew up, continue to shape her work. Chickens hanging by their feet in the market, the smell of sawdust around her saddle shoes, the first bite of a warm tortilla, sprinkled with salt and tightly rolled.
Don Hogle‘s poetry has been published widely in journals throughout the U.S. and the U.K. A chapbook, Madagascar, is forthcoming from Seven Kitchens Press. Hogle’s love of poetry began when he was a child, acting out the witches’ scenes from Macbeth with monkey puppets. He was disciplined in kindergarten for kissing the girls; some things have changed in the intervening years.
This event is made possible through Poets House’s Literary Partners Program. Poets House is an ADA accessible facility.
