About this Event

About Poetry Prom:

Serving as the official book release of Alexa Patrick's debut poetry collection Remedies for Disappearing, Poetry Prom will be part poetry reading part party! This event will include "prom photos" from a professional photographer, poetry readings from some of your favorite poets, dancing, drinks, and fellowship.

This event is made possible by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and Salt and Sundry

About Remedies for Disappearing

In this beautiful debut from an exciting new poet, Alexa Patrick's Remedies for Disappearing memorializes Blackness in its quiet and unexpected forms, bringing the peripheral into focus. These poems muddy Black life and death, observe lineage and love stories, and question what "disappearing" teaches about Blackness and bodies. Find out more here
