FutureLit: A Conversation & Celebration with Danez Smith, Donika Kelly, and Malcolm Tariq
What is the sustenance within storytelling? How do we make a vessel for difficult conversations? Where does art live in the body?
Graywolf Press partners with BAM to present an evening of readings and conversation with authors that are writing us into the future and broadening literary horizons. Select Graywolf authors present original work, prompting dialogue about what the future of art holds, written and otherwise. Afterwards, we offer nourishment, drinks, spaces to mingle, and comfortable corners to read, and invite attendees to help cultivate a collective space to dream, dialogue, and recreate. We’ll open the floor to music and dancing and encourage you to continue the conversation as you like, through movement, language, or an expression of your choosing.
Books will be available for purchase through Greenlight Bookstore, BAM’s official bookseller, with selections by featured authors available at a special 15% discount for attendees of this event.
This is why I love poems: they require me to sit still, listen deeply, and imagine putting myself in someone else’s unfamiliar shoes.
