This is a seven-date Reading and Discussion program about author and poet Audre Lorde, with grant funding by Humanities of NY. Dates are as follows: Feb. 9, Feb. 19, Mar. 2, Apr. 6, May 4, June 1, and June 29.


Lorde’s powerful voice, documented in her poems, essays, speeches, biomythography and Cancer Journals, remain vital and instructive. It is not only worth reading for its own sake, but continues to provide keen insight into the differences that strengthen American society. This Reading and Discussion series provides participants throughout New York State an opportunity to discuss Lorde’s writings as they explore issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality.


Reading materials will be provided and may include: Warrior Poet, The Collected Poems of Audre Lorde, Sister Outsiders, Zami: A New Spelling of My Name, and The Cancer Journals.
