SWOLE by Jerika Marchan

Book Launch and Reading

August 16th, 7 – 9 PM

Please join us for the launch of SWOLE by Jerika Marchan, published by Futurepoem. Marchan will be joined by LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs and Adjua Greaves for an evening of readings to celebrate the release.

Jerika Marchan was born in Manila, Philippines and raised in the American South. A graduate of Louisiana State University and the Iowa Writers' Workshop, she lives in New Orleans. SWOLE (Futurepoem, 2018) is her first book.

"You can’t graph grief, hope, trauma, or what it took to survive. But you can collect them in poetry, the way Jerika Marchan does in her debut collection, SWOLE, an experimental, sprawling collage of poems drawn from her childhood experience of Hurricane Katrina. The scope of recovery from disaster is usually zoomed out, on the depersonalized plane of cities. Marchan’s eye is a roving one, taking in the whole stretch of New Orleans on an intimate level—it’s people, it’s music, it’s idiom, and it’s bloat.” —Yasmin Adele Majeed, Ploughshares

In 2017 Belladonna* published her chaplet Close Reading As Forestry.
