We’re excited to celebrate Poetry Month at the Cactus Book Club with a discussion of the delicacy of embracing spirals by mimi tempestt. tempestt’s poetry collection investigates the ways in which the personal narrative of Black queer womanhood can be expressed through a radically human lens. With a visual sensibility that explodes across the page, the collection begins with microcosmic poems of personal struggle and spirals out to macrocosmic texts of social and political critique. The book culminates in a fantastic account of the staging of a play with life-threatening consequences.

Cactus Book Club meets on the first Wednesday of the month from 5:30-7:30 at Cactus Club (in the back venue room or outside patio, weather permitting). Each month a different business, community organization, collective, or artist chooses the book and leads the discussion. We read fiction and non-fiction, with a focus on works by women, LGBTQ+, POC, and/or otherwise under-published groups. You don’t have to finish reading the book to attend. 18+. All book club meetings are free. No registration required.
