Event Details

 

Patricia Lockwood's poems have appeared in Gulf Coast, Poetry, Agni, Denver Quarterly, the New Yorker, and American Letters & Commentary. Her first book of poetry is Balloon Pop Outlaw Black (Octopus Books, 2012). Her poem "Rape Joke" appeared on The Awl this past summer and became an online sensation. The Guardian said Lockwood "casually reawakened a generation's interest in poetry" while Salon said that the poem should "end the rape joke debate." Poetry Foundation declared the poem "world-famous."

Lockwood will read from her work and participate in a brief Q&A after the reading. Presented in partnership with University of Wynwood and The Writer's Room at The Betsy, with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
