Your Neighborhood’s Feminist Witchcraft: An Interview with Jericho Brown & Yours Truly!

Here’s an interview about this upcoming Hugo House Literary Series reading with Jericho Brown and Porochista Khakpopur, where I talk about The Male Gaze, God watching you, and how maybe we could lock those two in a staring contest and go about our revolution. Jericho questions “whether there is such a thing as ‘universal’ and whether experiences that are not universal can be rendered as the so-called sublime.”

Hugo Literary Series: Jericho Brown, Porochista Khakpour, Rachel Kessler

November 10 at 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM

The 2017-2018 Hugo Literary Series coincides with our move to a new and permanent home on the same site where we first opened our doors over 20 years ago. In this same spirit of development and growth, we’ve commissioned new work on themes of real estate—from the pragmatic issues of property value to the more nebulous idea of place.

Award-winning poet Jericho Brown; critically acclaimed writer Porochista Khakpour; Seattle-based poet, performer, and one-half of the Vis-à-Vis Society, Rachel Kessler; and musician Katie Jacobson will present new and original work on the theme of “Area Protected by Neighborhood Watch.”

Books will be for sale through Elliott Bay Book Company and Open Books: A Poem Emporium.

Perhaps I will show some slides of some experimental maps I made:
