Event date: 
04/17/2019 - 7:00pm

Join us at Book Culture on 112th on Wednesday, April 17th at 7pm for an evening of poetry reading with Lonely Christopher and Shiv Kotecha authors of The Resignation and The Switch.

The Resignation:

Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. "THE RESIGNATION meditates on the fraught relation between multitudes such as: sonnets, sexy lakes, sestinas, psychoanalysis, realistic nightgowns, Bert & Ernie's slutty leather gear, the childhood fantasy of the mother-vulture, and Puritan speech. Magnetic fields of explanation nervously masturbate in a public portal of joyously reappropriated repression. How do you know this is for real? Because there is power and vast broken light. There is nothing but pleasure. And there is this clear place within care."--Rachel Zolf.

The Switch:

Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. THE SWITCH compiles three books in one: 
1. an extended apology, in verse, for friendship and desire
2. a fictional "obedience residency manual"
3. a poem by the unlovable Lord fucking Shiva
