Subtext: Brenda Iijima + Brian Carpenter

Presented by Subtext Reading Series.

BRENDA IIJIMA’s forthcoming books include Rabbit Lesson (Fewer & Further Press) and If Not Metamorphic (Ahsahta Press). These days she is conducting a steady dirt dialog with CA Conrad and spelunking retro emergence as evidenced in homo sapien roots, cave people, burials, excavations, quaking underlayers, body sensing and incarceration, etc. by filtering through the concept of revolution with all its varied implications — that and understanding animals’ selves. She publishes a chapbook series at Portable Press at Yo-Yo Labs in Brooklyn, NY. BRIAN CARPENTER is an expatriate Seattleite currently living in Philadelphia, where he works as an audio archivist of Native American languages. His three books and boxes of poetry are Bluest Keys, Aspect Cycle, and Small Seasons.
