A Night Of Poetry With Morgan Parker says
Join us in celebrating Morgan Parker's acclaimed new poetry collection, THERE ARE MORE BEAUTIFUL THINGS THAN BEYONCÉ.

“Morgan Parker is a fearlessly forward and forward-thinking literary star.” —Terrance Hayes, winner of the National Book Award

“A brash, risqué collection that explores what it means to be a black woman in contemporary American culture. . . . Each woman in this fierce collection wants to be seen for who she is, not what society wants her to be, and each demands respect.” —The Washington Post

“Parker weaves together Marvin Gaye lyrics, texting slang, and a critical, caring perspective on black womanhood to create poems that are both radically powerful and laugh-out-loud funny.” —VICE

MORGAN PARKER's latest book is THERE ARE MORE BEAUTIFUL THINGS THAN BEYONCÉ (Tin House Books 2017). Her work has been published in The Paris Review, Poetry, The New York Times, The Nation, Buzzfeed, and elsewhere. Parker is the recipient of a National Endowment of the Arts Literature Fellowship, winner of a Pushcart Prize, and a Cave Canem graduate fellow. With Tommy Pico, she co-curates the Poets With Attitude (PWA) reading series, and, with poet Angel Nafis, she is The Other Black Girl Collective.
