Toronto New School of Writing’s Visiting Writer Series, in partnership with the English Department of Ryerson University and BookThug, present an evening with Lisa Robertson in conversation with Aisha Sasha John.
Please join us for an evening of conversation with poet Lisa Robertson as we celebrate the release of Nilling, a new collection of essays by Lisa Robertson. Joining Lisa is poet Aisha Sasha John, who will launch a new chapbook titled Gimme yr little quiet. Both Nilling and Gimme yr little quiet are published by BookThug.
Nilling: Prose is a sequence of 6 loosely linked prose essays about noise, pornography, the codex, melancholy, Lucretius, folds, cities and related aporias: in short, these are essays on reading.
Lisa Robertson lives in the Vienne region of France. Her most recent books of poetry are Lisa Robertson’s Magenta Soul Whip, which was selected by the New York Times as one of the 100 best books of 2010, and R’s Boat, shortlisted for The Believer’s 2011 Poetry award. In 2006, BookThug published The Men: a Lyric Book.
Aisha Sasha John is a poet, a dancer, the author of The Shining Material (BookThug 2011) and the curator of the online gallery BOOM FOR REAL (http://hugetime.tumblr.com/). Her current work-in-progress is called The Book of You.
