Special exhibition of works by Charles Everett

A reading by Ariel Francisco from his new book (published by Burrow Press) + musical performances (voice and piano) inspired by the book and arranged by CF2 composers. Q&A and book signing to follow.

ABOUT THE BOOK

In Ariel Francisco’s Miami, invasive lionfish are sympathetic creatures, the beach succumbs to sea-level rise, and “305 till I die” is a cry for help. Taking inspiration from Campbell McGrath and Richard Blanco, among others, Ariel Francisco’s second book of poems (which includes parallel Spanish translations) deals with climate change and the absurdities and difficulties of being a millenial Latinx in the Sunshine State.

ABOUT THE POET

“Part satirist, part ecopoet, part elegist, but every bit a luminous poet, Ariel Francisco brilliantly voices the complex intersections of the physical, emotional, and natural landscapes that define our sense of place and belonging, as well as our feelings of alienation and ennui.”
–Richard Blanco, Presidential Inaugural Poet, author of How to Love a Country

Ariel Francisco’s work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Academy of American Poets, The American Poetry Review, and elsewhere. A poet and translator born in the Bronx to Dominican and Guatemalan parents and raised in Miami, he is the author of the poetry collections A Sinking Ship is Still a Ship and All My Heroes Are Broke. He lives in Queens.
