J. Mae Barizo presents 
Tender Machines
In conversation with Mira Jacob

Spanning two decades, the poems in Tender Machines are set against the backdrop of changing landscapes—post 9-11 Manhattan, Manila, the northern Mojave desert—against which J. Mae Barizo considers love and disaster, its impetus and aftermath. Barizo swings between the domestic and the surreal, charting the city, motherhood, and an immigrant family’s haunted inheritance. Through sonnets and minimalism, she explores the subtleties of longing and colonial memory, and the emotional topographies that evolve in their wakes. Greenlight is delighted to welcome poet J. Mae Barizo with special guest Mira Jacob as moderator to our Fort Greene stage for a lively evening of reading and conversation.
