"John’s eminently relatable, apparently literal anecdotes slip quite seamlessly into mythology and surrealism.

Brecken Hancock

An afternoon of acclaimed poetry presented in collaboration with the Plan 99 Reading Series.  

 

Nothing slips by Brecken Hancock's deft ear as she seductively plumbs the depths of the evolution of bathing, doppelgängers, the Kraken and the minutiae of family with all its tragic misgivings. The poems in Broom Broom pervert the rational, safe parts of the world to extoll and absorb the sweep of human history.

 

Aisha Sasha John’s THOU is a collection of three narrative poems exploring the social space that exists between the self and others. Using the language that connects these two states of being, she investigates the idea of “you”—what it is and what it means to say “you,” the stories we make of our own multiple “yous,” and by extension, the “you” an author can make of her own book.
