There is too much to say: Toi Derricotte
Toi Derricotte brings a fierce tenderness to the page—a lit wattage to the dark secrets we hold because of love or fear or both. In a time to cross barriers and increase communication, Derricotte lets us know there is much to say. Derricotte will read from her recent collection of Poetry I: New and Selected Poems, published in 2019 and shortlisted for the National Book Award. Her other works include The Undertaker’s Daughter, Tender, Captivity, Natural Birth, and The Empress of the Death House. Her literary memoir, The Black Notebooks, won the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award for Non-Fiction and was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.

The recipient of many literary awards and fellowships, Derricotte was awarded the Poetry Society of America’s Frost Medal in 2020 in recognition of her service to poetry. With Cornelius Eady, Derricotte co-founded the Cave Canem Foundation in 1996.

Please note that this event will be presented via virtual platform in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). Access links will be included in a performance reminder email closer to the event.
