Book launch: Cortney Lamar Charleston presents Telepathologies
Readings by Camonghne Felix, Paul Tran, Shira Erlichman and Jeremy Michael Clark
Hosted by Angel Nafis
Wine reception to follow
Greenlight is thrilled to host the launch of Cortney Lamar Charleston’s new collection Telepathologies, with a little help from some talented friends! Cortney is a recipient of fellowships from Cave Canem and The Conversation Literary Festival, and his poems have been published widely. His debut collection Telepathologies was selected by D.A. Powell for the 2016 Saturnalia Books Poetry Prize. The book looks unflinchingly at the state of race in twenty-first-century America; it is a shout in the darkness, a plea for sanity in an age of insanity, and an urgent call to action. Fellow poets Camonghne Felix, Paul Tran, Shira Erlichman and Jeremy Michael Clark open for Cortney at tonight’s event, which is hosted by poet and curator Angel Nafis and followed by a wine reception.
