Terrance Hayes (winner of the 2010 National Book Award, and a recipient of a MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’) will be performing work from his new collection, American Sonnets for My Past and Future Assassin. Written during the first 200 days of the Trump administration, it is a 70-poem roller-coaster ride through politics, music, life and love; shot through with the vernacular energy of popular culture it shines a blistering spotlight on the dividing lines of race, gender and political oppression, which define the early 21st century.
