Sundress Publications announces a virtual book launch and reading to celebrate the release of NOMBONO: An Anthology of Speculative Poetry by BIPOC Creators From Around the World.
The virtual launch will take place via Zoom on October 27th from 7:00-8:30PM EST.
In the stunning and imaginative NOMBONO: An Anthology of Speculative Poetry by BIPOC Creators From Around the World, we are presented with visions, invocations, foretellings, and bold harbingers. NOMBONO, drawing from the Zulu word for “visionary,” brings together mystical dreams and possibilities that are at times both striking and devastating. This anthology, edited by Akua Lezli Hope, asks: are we on a bright threshold or at the edge of a dark precipice? Are we about to take flight and evolve or plummet into cataclysm? Around each corner in this book there may be a hyena man, salmon women, Mananggal, prayers, or curses. There is steady, unbroken eye contact, and there is fierce joy and fury. Here we have the limitless, boundless exploration of resplendent worlds.
