Event description
River Coello celebrates the launch of self/ser - an exploration of queer and trans existence and love.

About this Event

Join us on September 25th as author River Coello celebrates the launch of self/ser through Homie House Press!

self/ser is a compilation of deeply personal poems and portraits exploring queer and trans existence and love. Written over a period of ten years, in English and Spanish between the United States and Ecuador, the book questions and accepts, claims and sheds, important aspects of the self on the road to becoming.

This event will feature a poetry reading, a Q&A session, and a book signing with River, as well as performances by Alex Jenny, Luan Joy Sherman, Karari, Irregular Girl/Regina, Zola Makeda, and Javi Aya!

River Coello is a queer and trans multidisciplinary artist from Guayaquil, Ecuador living in Chicago, Illinois. As a writer, River’s work explores various liminalities of the human condition through a focus on River’s own identities and experiences, grounded in a deeply spiritual perspective. As an actor, River has appeared on various stage productions, having trained at Acting Studio Chicago, Second City Training Center, and the University of Michigan.

Entry is free with a cash / Venmo bar at the space. RSVP to reserve your spot today!
