jayy dodd and Lourdes Figueroa: October 28, 2021
The Poetry Center presents jayy dodd, whose book The Black Condition ft. Narcissus (Nightboat Books, 2019) — "an irreverently tender profile of Black trans life surviving and thriving during contemporary political turmoil" — was selected to receive the Poetry Center Book Award. She reads from that book and from other poems, and is joined by award judge Lourdes Figueroa, who reads from her own poems. Following their readings, the poets engage in conversation, together with emcee, Tatiana Luboviski-Acosta.
