A Reading with Kristiana Kahakauwila, Lauren K. Alleyne & Jamaica Baldwin
Fri, Apr 28 at 7pm
Hugo House poet-in-residence Anastacia Tolbert guest curates a special evening of readings featuring Kristiana Kahakauwila, Lauren K. Alleyne, and Jamaica Baldwin.
Kahakauwila is the author of the stunning story collection, This is Paradise: Stories and is currently at work on her next book, a multi-generational novel about water and native rights on the island of Maui.
Alleyne’s poetry collection, Difficult Fruit, grapples with personal experience, naming and claiming the “fruits” of Alleyne’s specific journey into womanhood, which includes coming to terms with violence and loss, celebrating love and connection, as well as standing witness in the world that shaped the journey.
Baldwin is a Seattle-based poet currently working on her first book. You can read some of her most recent work at The Seattle Review of Books.
