This is the book launch for Black Radish's Forget It, one of three Anastacia Reneé titles due for publication this summer. If you haven't seen Reneé at a reading around town in the last year or so, you haven't been going to readings around town. She's everywhere, either performing her dramatic, multi-persona poems from one of those three books, or starring in her ever-developing solo show, 9 Ounces. She's swept up tons of local and national awards and residencies recently, and for good reason: her poems are smart and powerful, her delivery is varied and compelling, and she's got great style.
