Join poet Ananya Garg for an online Poetry class on Mondays at 5:30 pm PST. Ananya believes that anyone can be a poet, she hopes that this class allows you space to find your own poetic voice. In this poetry class, participants will have the chance to read, discuss, and even write and share poems in a safe and welcoming space. We will read and discuss contemporary poets of color who write about issues affecting our communities today. Ananya will also share opportunities to get involved in the local poetry community.
To celebrate Black History Month, we will be featuring works of different Black poets in February. In this week's session, we'll be looking at Danez Smith. Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, Danez Smith received an MFA from the University of Michigan. Smith is the author of Homie, (Graywolf Press, 2020), Don’t Call Us Dead (Graywolf Press, 2017), which was short-listed for the National Book Award, and [insert] boy (YesYes Books, 2014), winner of the Kate Tufts Discovery Award and the Lambda Literary Award for Gay Poetry.
Estelita's Library is a local Black owned bookstore that you could buy the books from if you are interested.
