The Poetry Project


Fred Moten & Ronaldo V. Wilson

The writing of Fred Moten and Ronaldo V. Wilson moves like a melody between parted lips through the liminal spaces of poetry, criticism, history, and narrative. Sublime, symphonic, ecstatic, “they are/ recording / angels, so / we join them” (Moten, perennial fashion presence falling).


We hope you can join us at 7:00PM for a reception before the event. The reading will begin at 8:00PM. Masks will be optional while enjoying drinks and company during the reception but will be required once the reading begins.


Masks are required at all Poetry Project events unless otherwise specifically noted. While we will have masks available we encourage you to come with a mask for the reading. We also encourage all event attendees to take a rapid test the day of the event before heading to the church.

This in-person event will also be livestreamed via The Poetry Project's YouTube. Livestream captions will be available via a StreamText link or the CC button on YouTube's player.

Open CART captioning is scheduled for most in-person events.
