Naima Yetunde Ince: Ghost Load

When: Fri., March 17, 7 p.m. 2017

Naima Yetunde Ince has moved from stage to page in her new poetry collection, Ghost Load, and she swiftly returns to the performance sphere in this book launch at So & So. Ince, a transplant from Brooklyn, has previously thrived in spoken-word and drama settings (she studied theater at SUNY Purchase). She wrote, directed, and starred in the one-act play Men Always Leave at the Women's Theatre Festival last summer; she is also the coauthor, with Cecelia Adams, of the "poetic graphic novel" I Hate Men. Ghost Load is her first book of poetry, but followers of her drama and spoken-word pieces will immediately recognize the flexible, evocative, emotive voice it contains. At So & So, Ince is joined by Garner's Celestine Hinnant, who also bridges poetry and drama (she has worked with the Justice Theater Project and MOJOAA Performing Arts Company), and Peter-charles Rainmaker Seaton, a Nuyorican slam poetry veteran.—Brian Howe
