[VIRTUAL] In Conversation: No'u Revilla and Julian Aguon

RSVP HERE! 

This August, the Asian American Writers’ Workshop joins Milkweed Editions in celebrating No’u Revilla‘s debut collection Ask the Brindled, which was selected by poet Rick Barot as a winner of the 2021 National Poetry Series. Praised by Craig Santos Perez as “an astonishing addition to the canon (or canoe) of Pacific Islander literature” this collection reclaims narratives placed upon queer and Indigenous Hawaiians in a “gorgeous unfolding of story and polemic, audacity and song” (Rick Barot).

For this virtual celebration, No’u will be joined in conversation and story by Indigenous human rights lawyer and writer Julian Aguon, author of the lyric essay No Country for Eight-Spot Butterflies.

Pre-order No’u and Julian’s books from our friends at Books Are Magic here.

This event will be streamed on Zoom Webinar. Please RSVP to receive a Zoom link via email in advance of the event. The event will be uploaded to the AAWW YouTube channel later this summer.

// NOTE ON ACCESSIBILITY //

This event will be captioned, and will include ASL Interpretation by Pro Bono ASL.
