Poetry reading by Jac Nelson & Deborah Woodard

Event Date: 2019/03/16

Event Description:

$5 suggested donation; no one turned away  •   ADA accessible
The Spare Room reading series presents a poetry (and play) reading by Jac Nelson and Deborah Woodard.
Jac Nelson is a multimedia poet living between the ancestral lands of the Nisqually people and of the Očeti Šakówiŋ. Their work begins with art and artist as ethical questions that emerge from inherited context: ancestry, language, land, trauma, coercion, and decision activate their aesthetic search for multigenerational healing and connection. Jac continues to learn about, engage with, and resist the ways they benefit from white supremacy originating in genocide, slavery, and other violences. Recent work was shown at Gay City in Seattle Wa, published by Black Warrior Review and Fanzine, and is forthcoming in Old Pal and soft surface.
Deborah Woodard is the author of Plato's Bad Horse (Bear Star, 2006), Borrowed Tales (Stockport Flats, 2012) and No Finis: Triangle Testimonies, 1911 (Ravenna Press, 2018). She has published several chapbooks, including Hunter Mnemonics (hemel press, 2008), which was illustrated by artist Heide Hinrichs. Her poetry has appeared in Alive at the Center: Contemporary Poems from the Pacific Northwest (Ooligan Press, 2013), Filter, Handsome, Gargoyle, Shake the Tree, Zoland Poetry, and elsewhere. She has translated the poetry of Amelia Rosselli from Italian in The Dragonfly, A Selection of Poems: 1953-1981 (Chelsea Editions, 2009), Hospital Series (New Directions, 2015) and Obtuse Diary (Entre Rios Books, 2018). Deborah teaches at Hugo House in Seattle.
