Indian Ocean Blues with Divya Victor and Meena Alexander

  • 112 W 27th St Suite 600 New York, NY 10001 (map)

Join us for a reading that pushes the boundary of home and questions symptoms of belonging through meditations on kin, violence, and rupture. We’ll hear from Meena Alexander, whose new collection of poetry revisits her crossings of the Indian Ocean since the age of five and personal geographies in Sudan, England, India, and the US. The poet Divya Victor will read from Kith, her visual and instructional book of stolen and insurgent history that asks us to re-order the question of belonging in the Indian and Southeast Asian diasporas.
