Lyric Sexology Book Launch
June 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Chances are you’ve read Trish Salah’s poetry that “makes a perfect mess of so much human experience that’s been too tidily categorized” (Michael V. Smith). Drawing on personal history and theory, anthropological and psychoanalytic archives, Salah’s lyric and language poetry will be your summer reading, we hope.
Metonymy’s new edition of Lyric Sexology Vol. 1 (originally published by Roof Books in 2014) is out this month. With a new cover design by Kai Yun Ching and Wai-Yant Li, a few new poems, and Trish’s always thoughtful stage presence, you won’t want to miss this book or this tour.
+++First stop: Hamilton, in a trans women of colour Metonymy line-up alongside jia qing wilson-yang (author of Small Beauty) and Kai Cheng Thom (author of Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars)+++
