UWM English Presents Dawn L. Martin

Dawn Lundy Martin, an essayist and award-winning poet, is an Associate Professor of English at University of Pittsburgh. Martin wrote the libretto for a video installation opera, titled “Good Stock on the Dimension Floor,” which was scheduled to be featured in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, and is collaborating with architect Mitch McEwen on Detroit Opera House, “a project which stages an opera as a house, the house and its dramas of occupancy, vacancy, demolition, and re-purposing as an opera.” Her most recent essay, “The Long Road to Angela Davis’s Library” was published on NewYorker.com. Martin is also a cofounder of the Black Took Collective, an experimental performance art/poetry group of three.

In this presentation, Martin reads from her work at the UWM Hefter Conference Center (3271 N. Lake Dr.)  on Thursday, March 5, at 7 p.m. Books will be available for purchase.
