Audre Lorde Award Reading: Elizabeth Rosas, Samantha Cosentino, and Lillian Giles: September 10, 2020

The Poetry Center presents Audre Lorde Creative Writing Award-winner Elizabeth Rosas and Award-finalists Samantha Cosentino, Lillian Giles, and Bradley Penner (the latter opting not to present his poetry), reading and in conversation. The emcee, for this first of many Poetry Center remote-access programs to take place during the COVID-19 pandemic, is Poetry Center staff and MFA student TreVaughn Roach-Carter. Bradley Penner, declining the invitation to read his poems, instead presents a statement in solidarity with the George Floyd Uprising in response to racialized violence and structural social injustice, and in support with black lives and Black Lives Matter-related activism. Giles, Cosentino, and Rosas each read their poems and then speak with each other and respond to questions from the audience.
