Tues 6/26 Kate Bornstein & Susan Sherman at Bluestockings’ Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam

Women’s / Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike


Tuesday June 26th 7pm – 9pm


Feature Writers: Kate Bornstein & Susan Sherman


Kate Bornstein, gender theorist & performance artist, reads from her wickedly funny and disarmingly honest memoir A Queer and Pleasant Danger which tells the story of a nice Jewish boy who joined the Church of Scientology and left twelve years later, ultimately transitioning to a woman. A few years later, she stopped calling herself a woman and became famous as a gender outlaw.


Susan Sherman’s new and selected poems, The Light that Puts an End to Dreams, (June, 2012) is a mixture of intense political poems, intimate love poems and provocative reflections which Susan Griffin describes as “moving, lucid and revelatory poetry.”  Jewelle Gomez calls the suite of poems about Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz that concludes the book “an exquisite evocation of Sor Juana’s fiery brilliance which is mirrored in Sherman’s own.”
