The Poetry Center presents "an afternoon of literary drag," with Spring 2019 Mazza Writer in Residence Juliana Delgado Lopera, featuring Monique Jenkinson, aka Fauxnique, reading and in conversation. Delgado Lopera begins the afternoon with a performance of "Assigned Sad at Birth," an unpublished performance piece. Then Fauxnique reads an excerpt from an autobiographical manuscript in progress. Their readings are followed by a conversation between the artists, as well as with the audience. The Mazza Writer in Residence program is supported by the Sam Mazza Foundation.
