Ioana Lupascu: Fleeting Desires II
Sat, April 1, 3pm & Sun, April 2, 3pm
Fleeting Desires II is a facilitated gathering that foregrounds poetry as a space for unpacking broad notions of love.
Dear participant, we will begin the event with a short collective reading of a poem. This will stand as the ground for mapping, sharing and expanding on notions of love and affect as well as a way to get a sense of each other. After this guided exchange, we will pair up. Each pair will be encouraged to play, read, and interact with a poem (or fragment) of their choice from one of the selected texts. We will end with a reflection on the encounter.
On Sunday we will be joined by guest and friend Coco Gaie.
Selection of books:
- Girls That Never Die by Safia Elhillo
- Bestiary by Donika Kelly
- A Recipe for Sorcery by Vanessa Kisuule
- The Roads of the Roma: a PEN Anthology of Gypsy Writers
