Literary Partners Program: Veronica: A Suite in X Parts and All That Beauty Launch Party

Oct 18, 2019 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

selva oscura press and Letter Machine Editions invite you to celebrate the publication of Erica Hunt’s Veronica: A Suite in X Parts and Fred Moten’s All That Beauty. Both poets will read new poems.

Veronica: A Suite in X Parts is a tale of every Veronica, every femme trying to live despite the chronicle of a death foretold and the gratuitous violence of everyday life…This suite of poems takes the breath away, demands that you bow your head and get ready for the storm.” —Saidiya Hartman, MacArthur Fellow, author of Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments

A pathbreaking new volume of poems, All That Beauty combines lyrical prosody, radical thought, and African American theory in order to ask, “What is it to reside without settling? Is that is or is that ain’t like being stuck in sweetness, held in life?”

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 Sponsored by selva oscura press and Letter Machine Editions
