Airea D. Matthews presents Bread and Circus
In conversation with Naomi Jackson
Yale Young Poets Award Winner and Philadelphia’s Poet Laureate Airea D. Matthews graces our Fort Greene events stage for the launch of Bread and Circus, a collection of autobiographical poems about the economics of class and its failures for those rendered invisible by it. Timely, ambitious, and relevant, Bread and Circus is a brilliant intellectual and artistic contribution to an ongoing conversation about American inequality. Matthews is joined by Naomi Jackson for a powerful evening of verse and conversation.
