The Too Much Poetry Party: Book Release and Reading

A night of poetry and celebration! Award winning trans poet Gion Davis is on tour for the release of their debut collection, Too Much. Called “an uncompromising wonder” by Chen Chen and “a lonely, vulnerable, sexy book” by Willi Carlisle, Too Much looks at what it means to be queer and punk in the age of climate change and social imbalance. Davis’s book examines the detachment that comes along with growing up in rural America, guiding the reader through heartbreaks, road trips, bus rides, and loss while asking how much is too much in a world that is both overflowing and desolate.

The night will also feature readings from Philly poets Sadie Dupis, author of Cry Perfume and Mouthguard, Alina Pleskova, author of What Urge Will Save Us, and Amy Saul-Zerby, author of Deep Camouflage.
