Morgan Parker and Nicole Sealey: An Evening of Poetry

February 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm
Balch Auditorium
1030 Columbia Ave., Scripps College
Claremont, CA 91711 United States

Morgan Parker and Nicole Sealey mine the personal and political in their poetry, both reveling in and revealing the issues at the heart of contemporary life. Parker’s most recent collection, There Are More Beautiful Things Than Beyoncé, was hailed by The New Yorker as “exquisite poems [that] defy categorization,” while Essence magazine called Sealey “one of today’s most interesting poets…she steers us on a fantastic voyage through her infinitely brilliant mind.” The two read from their latest works, including Parker’s Magical Negro and Sealey’s Ordinary Beast.
