The Poetry Center presents Darius James and Val Jeanty in a first-ever collaboratiive "workshop performance" at The Poetry Center, in advance of their full performance the following night at The Lab in San Francisco. James reads from a newly issued edition of his novel Negrophobia: An Urban Parable (NYRB, 2019). Jeanty plays an electronic Korg Wavedrum as well as electronic turntables, improvising in real time with James's reading. This event, the first of a three-evening program in The Poetry Center's In Common Writers Series, was supported by a grant from the Walter & Elise Haas Fund.
