Deanna Fong & Anahita Jamali Rad: Poetry Reading
August 31, 2017 | 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Deanna Fong & Anahita Jamali Rad will be at The Paper Hound for a poetry reading, hosted by Danielle LaFrance.
Deanna Fong is a doctoral student at SFU, where her research focuses on the intersections of performance, audio archives, literary communities and intellectual property. She is currently developing digital interfaces for the audio/multimedia archives of Canadian poets Fred Wah and Roy Kiyooka.
Born in Iran and currently living on unceded Coast Salish territories, Anahita Jamali Rad’s work engages with materiality, love, class, violence, and displacement. Anahita Jamali Rad’s debut book of poetry, for love and autonomy (Talonbooks), juxtaposes Marxist economics with pop culture lyrics.
Danielle LaFrance is a poet, independent scholar, and librarian. She is the author of Species Branding (CUE 2010) and Friendly + Fire (Talonbooks 2016). Between 2012 – 2016, she co-organized the feminist materialist collective and journal series About a Bicycle, with Anahita Jamali Rad.
