Killing Summer Book Launch + Dance Party

  • TRYST 2459 18th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20009 United States (map)

We are very excited to announce Duende District's first book launch party with the amazing Sarah Browning, a huge supporter and advocate for PoC poets in the DMV and nationwide. Now it's time to celebrate her!

Award-winning poet Sarah Browning, co-founder and Executive Director of Split This Rock, will launch her second book of poems, Killing Summer (Sibling Rivalry Press), with a reading and dance party at Tryst Café, Friday, October 20, 8 pm. Browning writes at the intersection of the personal and the political, calling American history to account. 

National Book Award finalist Tim Seibles says of Killing Summer, “With both tender ferocity and subtle elegance, this book helps to sustain us.” 

Longtime Split This Rock poet-activists Yael Flusberg and Dan Vera will also be part of the program, with Flusberg acting as MC and Vera, chair of Split This Rock’s board of directors, introducing Browning. Free and open to the public. Duende District will sell books.
