Poetry Reading with Emily Skillings

Event Details

As part of its All of the Sky: Five Poets, Five Saturdays series, The Aldrich will host five noted contemporary poets–Claudia Rankine, Mahogany L. Browne, Rosebud Ben-Oni, Nathalie Handal, and Emily Skillings–for Saturday readings held in person in the Museum beginning on July 9, 2022.

The five poets selected for this series each bring their varied perspectives from a diverse range of backgrounds and will read selections that reflect the role feminist writers, artists, and leaders have played in their practices. A talkback and book signing will follow each reading.

Lauded by Publishers Weekly for “her saucy, nonchalant feminist discontent,” Emily Skillings is the author of the poetry collection Fort Not and two chapbooks, Backchannel and Linnaeus: The 26 Sexual Practices of Plants. She is a member of the Belladonna* Collaborative, a feminist poetry collective and small press. Skillings has taught creative writing at Yale, Columbia, Parsons School of Design, Poets House, and through Brooklyn Poets.
