Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike for Women & Trans’
Tuesday June 28th 7pm – 9pm
Feature Writers: Linda Lerner & Jane Summer
A lot of Linda Lerner’s recent poems have to do with the city, recent events, death of well known musicians, and always relationships I’m in and changing feelings about my parents and that complicated business. She will also read poems from her last collection Yes, The Ducks Were Real and her chapbook Ding Dong the Bell Pussy in the Well
Jane Summer’s hybrid book Erebus examines issues of public and private mourning, identity and branding, corporate responsibility and personal ethics, loss and death–always death. These themes continue in her current project, which throws into the mix 1960s Italian cinema, fetishizing, suicide and how being an outsider makes you an honest liar.
