The Literary Committee will welcome members of the Black Ladies Brunch Collective for a poetry reading Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 7 pm. The event celebrates the release of their anthology: Not Without Our Laughter: Poems of Humor, Joy, and Sexuality, which was published by Mason Jar Press in 2017. Readers will include Teri Ellen Cross Davis, Saida Agostini and Tafisha Edwards. Teri Ellen Cross Davis’s first collection, Haint, was awarded the 2017 Ohioana Book Award for Poetry. Tafisha Edwards is the author of The Bloodlet, winner of Phantom Books’ 2016 Breitling Chapbook Prize. Saida Agostini is a queer, afro-guyanese poet and clinician. 

This reading is free and open to the public, with a cash bar. There will be time after the reading for book sales and signing.
