A Night with Award-Winning Poet: Morgan Parker!

February 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Jamaica Plain Forum in collaboration with our local, woman-owned independent bookstore, Papercuts are bringing Morgan Parker, author of There Are More Beautiful Things Than Beyoncé and more to our community. Parker’s forthcoming poetry book, Magical Negro explores states of black womanhood with astonishing buoyancy and grief.

“Magical Negro is unsettlingly new: a book that incisively explores states of black womanhood with astonishing buoyancy and grief. I can’t stop thinking about the songs it sings, songs that feel inevitable and yet unvoiced, complex and yet urgent; poems that are steeped in pop culture and the here-and-now of actual life while also being refracted through the darkest lens of American history. To read it is to wonder what each poem will do next, and to be reminded, over and over, of Parker’s extraordinary lyric gifts.” – Meghan O’Rourke
