Pittsford: Chime Lama

Event date: 
04/25/2024 - 6:00pm

Rochester poet Chime Lama will be reading from her new collection, Sphynxlike.

Sphinxlike is an exercise in stretching language, containing concrete poetry, Tibetan Buddhist thought, and the curated and out-of-body experience. It offers social critique and responds to capitalism and sexism with absurdity and humor. Activating visual art, sound poetry, and performance art, its poems collide and scatter across the page in an attempt to expand through space.

Lama holds an MA in Divinity from the University of Chicago and an MFA in Creative Writing from Brooklyn College, and she teaches Creative Writing at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
