Elliott Bay Book Company says
Some intense word time is in store on the Elliott Bay stage this evening as Bay Area poet Chinaka Hodge visits with her powerful, hip-hop infused book of poems, Dated Emcees (City Lights).

“Chinaka Hodge is hands down, unequivocally, my favorite writer of words. All day. Every day. She writes with the grace of a dancer, the bars of a rapper, the heart of your best friend, and allof the swag and soul of Oakland...These are poems to read every day. To make mantras from. They are the best poems you’ve ever read.” -Daveed Diggs of Broadway's HAMILTON

“Dated Emcees is outlined in the matter of black life, streamlined through the filter of black womb...a smoke-filled lung in a sweat-filled club of safety and danger, and the bass of black moon...” -Marc Bamuthi
