We are beginning to gather books for the popup library installation project. The first two books in the De-Canon collection are courtesy of Stephanie Adams-Santos: her most recent poetry collection Swarm Queen's Crown, and one earlier collection, Total Memory. Thank you, Steph, for these gifts to the library!
We are curating lists from local POC writers, artists, and readers in order to fill this library. Our goal is that the curation process is collective, and collaborative - which is why it is so important for us to hear from our friends in the community. If you feel so inclined, please share with us 5-10 books you would like to see appear on this library's shelves. And, if you are a writer of color in the community who would like us to know about your books, please contact us. We are happy to purchase books and/or to accept books as donations.
Our "popup library" will debut in August 2017 at UNA Gallery. A preview event and reading will take place, also at UNA, on June 1st.
