Karen Finley will read from her most recent book of poetry, Grabbing Pussy. A local resident, she is a performance artist, musician and poet. Her performance art, recordings, and books are used as forms of activism.

Karen Finley has written various books that focus on controversial topics. She wrote Shock Treatment, Enough Is Enough: Weekly Meditations for Living Dysfunctionally, and A Different Kind of Intimacy – a latter collection of her works. Her poem “The Black Sheep” is among her best-known works; it was displayed as public art in New York City for one month.

Daniel Lawless will read from his book The Gun My Sister Killed Herself With (Salmon Poetry Press, 2017). He is the founder and editor of Plume: A Journal of Contemporary Poetry.
