HoodWitch: Poetry Reading

November 21, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Join us for a poetry reading with author Faylita Hicks, who will read from her debut collection HoodWitch: Poems. In this collection about resilience, Hicks speaks about giving her child up for adoption, mourning the death of her fiancé, and embracing the nonbinary femme body—persevering in the face of medical malpractice, domestic abuse, and police violence. The poems find people transformed, “remade out of smoke & iron” into cyborgs and wolves, machines and witches—beings capable of seeking justice in a world that refuses them the option.
