The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents the October discussion of the center's Queer Poetry Reading Group, featuring Junk by indigenous writer Tommy Pico, the third book in the Teebs trilogy.
Junk is a book-length break-up poem that explores the experience of loss and erasure, both personal and cultural.
The Los Angeles Review of Books writes, "Reading Junk often feels like receiving a long text message from Pico, the kind of message your friend texts you from a bathroom at a party to share news of something illicit, or strange, or wonderful."
Limited free copies of the book are available -- request a copy with your RSVP. If you don't need a free copy, books can be purchased at this link -- and 10% of your purchase supports free arts programs at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center. The book is available in print or e-book formats.
The discussion is facilitated by Jimmy Hamill and is sponsored by Lehigh University's Southside Initiative and Humanities Center. This program is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
