The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents the June discussion of the center's Queer Poetry Reading Group, where we'll read Year of the Unicorn Kidz by Jason B. Crawford.
About the book:
Jason B. Crawford's Year of the Unicorn Kidz beautifully explores existence on the intersections of gender, race, and sexuality. Their profound navigation of identity, violence, and desire transcends boundaries and binaries. Vulnerability takes the centre stage as the speaker of these descriptive and passionate poems unburies old relationships and haunting memories. Year of the Unicorn Kidz reads like a coming-of-age story for marginalized youth in America, sketching the body in terms of disconnection, loss, and the explosive nature of desire. From burning rage to healing friendships to the thrill of forbidden encounters and the regrets that follow them, Crawford revisits the reckless elements of youth that capture the inner and outer conflicts of self-discovery. They bring incredible depth to their poetry with urgent and vivid storytelling that delicately reveals the complexity of reality, while also leaving room for readers to reflect on their own.
This group is a reading circle of about 10-12 people who receive a free book from Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center to discuss queer poetry. Limited free copies of the books are available. Email [email protected] to secure your free copy.
