Come cozy up in The Dial for an evening of poetry with Daniel Owen, Krystal Languell, Anna Vitale, and Lewis Freedman as we celebrate the new releases of Daniel Owen’s Restaurant Samsara and Anna Vitale’s Our Rimbaud Mask.
Of Restaurant Samsara:
“From the first bold declaration in Daniel Owen’s Restaurant Samsara, the looping language of eros and beauty jolts towards the reader and does not let up until the book is done… Both spare and lush, these poems are a gripping testament to the surprise, confusion and pleasures of navigating the modern world via poetic structures and visions.” — Sandra Simonds
Of Our Rimbaud Mask:
“Under special conditions of ritual and imagination a mask can reveal as well as conceal. With his Arthur Rimbaud mask, David Wojnarowicz showed us the strange and terrifying power of that, and now a poet by the name of Vitale encourages us to take stock of that precious achievement.—Michael Taussig
Refreshments will be served. Join us for this special event!
