Third Place Books Seward Park is thrilled to present the book launch of Anastacia-Renee's newest book, Answer(Me). Reneé’s live readings are truly one-of-a-kind: both tender and abrasive, political and personal.
Anastacia-Renée is a writer, performance artist and creative writing workshop facilitator. She is the Civic Poet of Seattle and a member of Seattle7, Distinguished Visiting Writer at Seattle University, 2017-2018, and has received poetry fellowships from Cave Canem, Hedgebrook, VONA, Artist Trust and Jack Straw, as well as a writing residency from Ragdale. Her theatrical mixed-media project, 9 Ounces: A One Woman Show is a multivalent social justice play unapologetically downward dogging its way through class, race, culture, oppression, depression, survival and epiphany. She is the Author of 26, (Dancing Girl Press) and her cross-genre work has been published widely. Three books, Forget It (Black Radish Books), Answer(Me), (Winged City Chapbooks, Argus Press) and (v.), (Gramma Press) are forthcoming in 2017.
