Saida Agostini at Red Emma’s (in-person)
June 9, 2022 @ 7:00 pmFree
Saida Agostini presents her debut collection of poetry, let the dead in, at Red Emma’s bookstore in Baltimore.
Audacious, sensual, and grieving, this work explores how Black women harness the fantastic to craft their own road to freedom. A journey across Guyana, London, and the United States, it is a meditation on black womanhood, queerness, the legacy of colonization, and pleasure. These poems craft a creation story fat with love, queerness, mermaids, and blackness.
