About the reading: “These poems are all from my second collection, Hysterical, which is about women’s fury, The Furies, ungraceful aging, and a little bit of breaking up with Jesus. Using the Oresteia as an organizing guide, the poems don’t shy away from women’s well-earned anger but center it, using it for fuel and light.”
