A Cave Canem alumnus, Tommye Blount is the author of Fantasia for the Man in Blue (Four Way Books, 2020), a long anticipated debut collection praised for its brilliantly orchestrated chorus of distinct, unforgettable voices that speak to the experience of the black, queer body as a site of desire and violence. For Literary Hub he recalls the book’s inception: in one month while walking for exercise in the early morning hours being stopped twice by the Novi police for looking suspicious.

December 13 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Online Concord, MA 01742 United States + Google Map
