This week, we kicked off the Whose Body? Project with videos of Ada Limón and Jericho Brown reading their poems “The Vulture & the Body” and “I am a Virus.” We’ll be posting two videos each week for the rest of the month, by poets Aimee NezhukumatathilC. BainRachel WileyRigoberto GonzálezPriscilla Orr, and Joseph Millar.

If you loved the first two videos in the series, you won’t want to miss our upcoming in-person event, Whose Body? Celebration and Reclamation on March 24th , 10 a.m. — 3:00 p.m. in Princeton, NJ.

We have a lineup of fantastic poets (two of whom have also contributed videos to the Whose Body Project!) who will be reading and performing as well as leading small group conversations and writing activities throughout the day. The featured performers are:

Whose Body? is a question that can act as an entryway to conversations about a multitude of issues, ranging from body image and body trauma to the incarcerated body and environment and the body.

The Whose Body? Celebration and Reclamation event, and these conversations, are not just for poets and writers. Anyone who is interested in diving deeper into what it means to live embodied in this world can use poetry as springboard.

Whose Body? Celebration and Reclamation is open to the public, and any teachers in attendance are eligible to receive PDH. We are collecting a $15 meal fee to covering catering costs for lunch.

We hope you’ll join us at this special event!
