City Lights Live presents
Second Stutter Volume Five Launch Party
Jimmy Santiago Baca, Jaime Chavez, Tureeda Mikell, Norma Cole, Adrian Lurssen, Ivan Arguelles, and Eleni Stecopoulos.
Hosted by Solomon Rino
Second Stutter Volume Five focuses on multicultural and multilingual encounters from the Chicano, African American, modern Greek to the Maghreb. Volume Five also includes important collaborations between poets and translators furthering its dialogic quality.
Second Stutter is a literary journal edited by Colin Partch and Solomon Rino. The journal focuses on contemporary poetry and poetry in translation. The covers are handmade, often letterpress printed and we have deliberately refused any online presence. Each volume is 100-150 copies, reiterating limits and the presence of the hand as a counter-gesture to a culture of excess.
Made possible by support from the City Lights Foundation.
