Please join us at Counterpath (7935 East 14th Ave. in Denver) on Sunday, April 28th, 2019, 7pm, for a reading and performance by Jackie Wang and Andrea Brady. The event is free and open to the public.

Preceding this event will be a reading group on Jackie Wang’s Carceral Capitalism, to take place Sunday, April 14th, 4pm-6pm, at Counterpath. Free and open to the public, with light refreshments. No need to read all or any of the book to participate.

Jackie Wang, the author of Carceral Capitalism, is a student of the dream state, black studies scholar, prison abolitionist, poet, performer, library rat, trauma monster and PhD student at Harvard University. She is the author of a number of punk zines including On Being Hard Femme, as well as a collection of dream poems titled Tiny Spelunker of the Oneiro-Womb.

Andrea Brady is Professor of Poetry at Queen Mary University of London. She was born in Philadelphia and earned her doctorate in early modern literature at Cambridge University; that work became her first monograph, English Funerary Elegy in the Seventeenth Century (Palgrave Macmillan, 2006). She received a Leverhulme Trust fellowship in 2014 to begin her current book project, on poetry and constraint across several historical periods. She co-edited a collection of essays on The Uses of the Future in Early Modern Europe, and has written many journal articles and essays on early modern as well as contemporary poetry.

Andrea is a poet, and works closely with contemporary poets in the UK and abroad. She has performed throughout the UK, Europe, Canada, the US and Lebanon, and has been invited to speak about poetry by the British Council, the BBC, the Arts Council, and the Poetry Society. Her work has been translated into eleven languages, and is the subject of a large number of critical essays. She is co-publisher of the small poetry press Barque (with Keston Sutherland), and founder and director of the ‘Archive of the Now’, the UK’s largest digital archive of performances by experimental poets.
