Be My Valentine (Or Not): Michelle Peñaloza’s landscape/heartbreak Release Party
What kind of story can a city tell if this isn’t just the corner of Broadway and John, but the corner where X learned that Y never really loved him? Or if this isn’t just the hospital across the street, but the place where Z told her mother she loved her for the very last time?
With poems and maps, Michelle Peñaloza’s landscape/heartbreak creates a literary cartography of heartbreak in Seattle.
The week of Valentine’s Day, commemorate hearts broken and healed (or not), and join the festivities of landscape/heartbreak‘s release from Two Sylvias Press. Cash bar! Q&A with Arlene Kim!
