In Our Voice: a Poetry Reading
by Professor Kateema Lee, Steven Leyva, Saida Agostini and Alan King
Wednesday, February 28, 2018, 1 - 2 p.m.
Germantown Campus Library, HS110

The Germantown Campus is fortunate to have our own published poet, Prof. Kateema Lee, who will be reading from her recently published book, Almost Invisible, on Wednesday, February 28 at 1 p.m. at the Germantown Campus Library. Professor Lee has invited three of her colleagues to read from their poetry as well. Saida Agostini, Alan King and Steven Leyva are published writers and Cave Canem fellows along with Professor Lee.

Saida Agostini is a queer afro-guyanese activist and the Chief Operating Officer of FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture, a survivor-led artist collective dedicated to resisting rape culture. She is also founder of the Rooted Collective, a liberatory gathering of Black LGBTQ people, and was recently awarded a Ruby grant to support the development of her first full-length collection of poems, uprisings in a state of joy.

Alan King teaches at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts and is the senior program director at the DC Creative Writing Workshop. Alan has been nominated for a Best of the Net selection and the Pushcart Prize. His book, Drift, was published by Willow Books in January.

Steven Leyva's poems have appeared or are forthcoming in 2 Bridges Review, Fledgling Rag, The Light Ekphrastic, The Cobalt Review, and Prairie Schooner. He is the author of the chapbook Low Parish. Steven holds a MFA from the University of Baltimore, where he is an assistant professor in the School of Communication Design.

Biographies of all four poets are provided in the attached document.

This event meets the M.C. mulicultural/diversity requirement.
Certificates of attendance will be provided.
