A Poetry Reading and Celebration of Melissa Green with J. Mae Barizo, Melissa Green & Marie Howe

Distinguished poets gather to read poems in honor of Melissa Green, who will close the evening by reading from her new book, Magpiety: New & Selected Poems. Marie Howe writes: “Melissa Green might well be a 21st century version of Emily Dickinson, poet of ecstatic states and extremity. These are poems ‘scratched in blood,’ written by a survivor, a poet, a woman pulled back to life.”
