Portrait of My Body as a Crime I’m Still Committing, the new book from Topaz Winters, is an award-winning, omnivorous collection of poetry residing in the space between confessional & manifesto. Portrait is interested in the immediacy of language; in girlhood as wolfhood; in the cartography of illness; in fractures through the dark; in bodies, human and water alike. Luminous, tender and unflinching, Portrait cuts straight to the marrow. To all those whose bodies have been more bruise than human—who feel so loudly the sky turns black in fear—this book is for you.
Along with author Topaz Winters, the launch of Portrait features special guests Jennifer Anne Champion (author of A Brief History of Clocks and Caterwaul), Natalie Wang (author of The Woman Who Turned Into a Vending Machine) and Jocelyn Suarez. It is moderated by Stephanie Dogfoot (author of Roadkill For Beginners. Doors open at 7 PM, entry is free, & everyone is welcome!
