Monster, Other, Ugly, Beauty: A Reading and Conversation with Hari Alluri and Julia Evans.

Hari Alluri is an award-winning poet, educator, and teaching artist, whose work appears widely in anthologies, journals and online venues. He is the author of Carving Ashes and The Promise of Rust, and his new collection is The Flayed City. “Hari Alluri is Michaux for our time. Which is to say: he is the poet who is able to find myth in our days of sorrow and displacement, when so many lose homes and identities, Hari Alluri offers a new music.” – Ilya Kaminsky, author of Dancing in Odessa.

Julia Evans and Ryan Bradford will share perspectives on women and horror, with Black Candies: Gross and Unlikeable.

Local author Greg Ven Eekhout is the creator of the contemporary fantasy California Bones series.

The Flayed City by Hari Alluri

Hari Alluri is an author who, according to U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera, “carries a new, quiet brush of multi-currents, of multi-worlds to paint this holographic life-scape.” In The Flayed City, Alluri gives an intimate look into the lives of city dwellers and immigrants, imagining the souls that reside in “broom-filled nights”, “skyscrapers for buoys”, and under an “aluminum rising sun”. The charged poems in The Flayed City sweep together “an archipelago song” scored by memory and landscape, history and mythology, desire and loss. Driven by what is residual—of displacement, of family, of violent yet delicate masculinity, of undervalued yet imperative work—Alluri's lines quiver with the poet's distinctive rendering of praise and lament steeped with “gravity and blood” where “the smell of ants being born surrounds us” and “city lights form constellations // invented to symbolize war.”
