After decades of work, Anastacia-Reneé is dropping three wildly different books this year. This party celebrates the birth of (v.), which was published by local heroes Gramma Press. Stranger Genius Award nominee Robert Lashley thinks the book is so good that it "deserves every stage poetry can give it," and it looks like its first stage is going to be a good one. There's going to be food, drinks, a photo-booth situation, and also readings by Tommy Pico, Sarah Galvin, and Imani Sims, as well as a Q&A with Reagan Jackson. If there's such a thing as "the poetry event of the summer season," this is it.
