Part of an international conference on literature by women of African ancestry (October 12-16) at New York University, this event features writers from around the world reading their work and discussing globalization’s impact on creative process and freedom. With Opal Palmer Adisa, Angela Jackson, Jackie Kay, Rosamond King, Jully Makini, Nancy Morejon and Pearl Eintou Springer.

Part of Subversive Traditions: Poetry, Identity and Community
This season, Poets House presents a number of programs that investigate poetry’s potential for undermining the established order of the day, whether political, aesthetic or social. With samplings from the U.S. and abroad, we will explore how poetry diversely expresses opposition, forges new allegiances, galvanizes communities and re-imagines the self.
