VIRTUAL - Natalie Diaz | Postcolonial Love Poem with Denice Frohman, 21 April | Online Event | AllEvents.in VIRTUAL - Natalie Diaz | Postcolonial Love Poem with Denice Frohman
Cost: FREE
Natalie Diaz is the author of When My Brother Was an Aztec, an “ambitious . . . beautiful” (New York Times) American Book Award–winning poetry collection that ruminates on her sibling’s drug addiction. A former professional basketball player, an enrolled member of the Gila River Indian community, and an English professor at Arizona State University, she is the recipient of a Lannan Literary Fellowship, a MacArthur Fellowship, and the Nimrod/Hardman Pablo Neruda Prize for Poetry. In her National Book Award nominated sophomore collection, Diaz transcends the horrors committed by America upon Indigenous people to find sublimity amongst vistas of words, the reversal of erasure, and the choice to love.

Acclaimed for celebrating identity, lineage, and the subversion of traditional notions of power, poet Denice Frohman has performed at the Obama White House, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Apollo, among a multitude of other venues. A former Women of the World Poetry Slam Champion, she has published work in Nepantla: An Anthology Dedicated to Queer Poets of Color, What Saves Us: Poems of Empathy and Outrage in the Age of Trump, and the Acentos Review, among many other places. Frohman is a former director at the Philly Youth Poetry Movement, has received fellowships and grants from numerous arts institutions, and has been prominently featured in BuzzFeed, Cosmopolitan, and Refinery29.

Natalie Diaz's and Denice Frohman's books may be purchased through the Joseph Fox Bookshop
