Michelle Lietz & jason b. crawford: Literati Bookstore At Home with Literati.:
These 2 poets discuss (via Zoom) their new collections. Crawford’s Year of the Unicorn Kidz reads like a coming-of-age story for marginalized youth in America, examining existence on the intersections of gender, race, and sexuality. Lietz’s Occasionally Petty uses lyrics from Tom Petty songs to explore nostalgia, adolescence, and the poet's mixed Yaqui, European, and Middle Eastern identity. 7 p.m., for URL see literatibookstore.com/event/2022-05.
