The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents the March discussion of the center's Queer Poetry Reading Group, where we'll read Content Warning: Everything by Akwaeke Emeze.

About the book:

In their bold debut poetry collection, Akwaeke Emezi―award-winning author of Freshwater, PET, The Death of Vivek Oji,and Dear Senthuran―imagines a new depth of belonging. Crafted of both divine and earthly materials, these poems travel from home to homesickness, tracing desire to surrender and abuse to survival, while mapping out a chosen family that includes the son of god, mary auntie, and magdalene with the chestnut eyes. Written from a spiritfirst perspective and celebrating the essence of self that is impossible to drown, kill, or reduce, Content Warning: Everything distills the radiant power and epic grief of a mischievous and wanting young deity, embodied.
