Shelley Wong presents As She Appears
In Conversation with John Murillo

Of Shelley Wong's debut collection of poems—winner of the 2019 Pamet River Prize and newly published by YesYes Books—Ocean Vuong (Time Is a Mother) wrote: "[T]hese poems accrue towards bold, prescient, and lasting architectures of being and feeling; they not only depict but think themselves into existence, which make them more than the sum of their parts, more than just an invention of "hers" or "womanhood," but a quietly profound indictment of contemporary culture." Need we say more? Greenlight is proud to help welcome As She Appears into the world, a collection that sings of queer women of color in their being and becoming, of ecstatic joys and layers of memory. Wong will be joined by acclaimed poet John Murillo (Up Jump the Boogie) for a virtual reading, conversation, and audience Q&A.
