Event Description

An autobiography told in poems and prose poems, this selection of work spans more than 40 years, beginning with the avant-garde arts movement and political activism of the 1960s. A mixture of intense political poems, intimate love poems, and provocative reflections, it traces the journey of a woman intimately involved with many significant events of the 20th century-the anti-war, feminist, and gay liberation movements, including time spent in Chile, Nicaragua, Cuba, and Barcelona. Accompanied by exquisite photographs, this collection culminates with a suite of 12 poems connecting contemporary history with the 17th century world of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. 

Susan Sherman is a poet, playwright, essayist, editor, and cofounder of IKON magazine. She is the author of America's Child: A Woman's Journey through the Radical Sixties and The Color of the Heart: Writing from Struggle & Change 1959-1990. She lives in New York City.
