24 Hours of Men: Book Launch with Poet Lisa Moore


You are invited to the launch of Lisa Moore's new collection of lesbian poems about men. Lisa's poems meet everyone from Donald Trump and the Pope to her own nearest and dearest with a wry mixture of outrage, compassion, humor and love. Poems for #metoo, for mothering white men, for calling out racist violence, for living this moment with as much grace as we can muster. Featuring readings from special guests Chad Bennett, Amanda Johnston, Cindy St. John, and Abe Louise Young

Lisa L. Moore is an Alberta-born writer who has lived in Austin, Texas for almost thirty years. She is the author, most recently, of the poetry chapbook 24 Hours of Men (Dancing Girl Press).
