TORCH Poetry Reading: Lauren K. Alleyne

Join us to celebrate Lauren K. Alleyne's new book of poetry, Honeyfish!

The title Honeyfish comes from a transliteration of the Greek word, Μελανούρι (melanouri), which is a kind of fish (saddled bream, to be precise). However, the poem and the book are really more about figuring out what kind of being one is, what one can become, what names one can claim or is claimed by, and how one translates oneself across the various contexts one encounters.
