In this bookclub, we'll look for poetry from as many cultures and perspectives as possible that honor the sense of vitality and singularity of voice unique to poetry.
Hosted by Nathan McDowell (Operations Manager) a writer from the Quad Cities and manager of Two Dollar Radio HQ.

Inheritance, by Taylor Johnson
Inheritance is a black sensorium, a chapel of color and sound that speaks to spaciousness, surveillance, identity, desire, and transcendence.
Influenced by everyday moments of Washington, DC living, the poems live outside of the outside and beyond the language of categorical difference, inviting anyone listening to listen a bit closer. Inheritance is about the self’s struggle with definition and assumption.
