We’re hosting a last minute reading for the poet Lotta Thießen visiting all the way from Berlin, and they’ll be joined by local faves Lauren Levin & Alex Cruse! We’re so excited! Come by!
Lotta Thießen is a poet and translator living in Berlin. She co-organizes the reading and translation series artiCHOKE, and edits the internationalist feminist zine Vírgulentxs. Her chapbook Fragments of Baby is forthcoming in 2019.
Lauren Levin is a poet and mixed-genre writer, author of The Braid (Krupskaya, 2016), which won the SFSU Poetry Center Book Award, and Justice Piece // Transmission (Timeless, Infinite Light, 2018). Their gender identity is some mix of belated queer, Jewish great-aunt, and aspirational Frank O'Hara. They are still figuring it out. They live in Richmond, CA, are from New Orleans, LA, and are committed to queer art, intersectional feminism, being a parent, and anxiety.
