03/26: Dykes of the Universe Tour-Winter/Spring 2020
Join us at Otherwild LA on Thursday March 26th for a night of poetry!
Catherine Chen & Jasmine Reid will read from their debut poetry collections Manifesto, Or: Hysteria (Big Lucks) and Deus Ex Nigrum, the 2018 Winner of the Honeysuckle Chapbook Contest, selected by Danez Smith, at this stop along their Dykes of the Universe co-book tour.
Catherine will reach into your soul & hold you in the mirrored reality of their poesis. Jasmine will invite you to find posterity & futurity in the blooming surround of human being. Together, in sky, these sibling comets arrive.
