Cave Canem Writers Showcase: Anastacia-Renee with Quenton Baker, Amanda Johnston, Dante Micheaux & L. Lamar Wilson

This Hugo House evening is presented under the auspices of Cave Canem, the renowned national African American poets organization founded by Toi Derricotte and Cornelius Eady in 1996, and directed by Nicole Sealey today. Helping foster work then - and today - this evening brings a range of voices from here and afar. Cave Canem fellow and present Seattle Civic Poet Anastacia-Renee has orchestrated what should be a terrific reading by other Cave Canem fellows: Seattle poet, educator, and artist Quenton Baker, author of This Glittering Republic (Willow Books); Texas poet, cofounder of Black Poets Speak Out, and Cave Canem board member Amanda Johnston, author of Another Way to Say Enter (Argus House Press), and earlier chapbooks;  and Dante Micheaux, author of Circus (Indolent Books) and Amorous Shepherd (Sheep Meadow Press); Anastacia-Renee is the author of Forget It (Black Radish Books), (v.) (Gramma Press), Answer Me (Argus Press), and 26 (dancing Girl Press); L. Lamar Wilson teaches creative writing and African American literature at the University of Alabama and is author of Sacrilegion (Carolina Wren Press) and co-author of Prime: Poetry and Conversation (Sibling Rivalry Press).

Presented by HUGO HOUSE. Free admission. More information here.
