The public is invited to a reading by Jacqueline Allen Trimble, author of How to Survive the Apocalypse, on Thursday, November 3 at 4 PM at the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities at Pebble Hill.
How to Survive the Apocalypse, the second collection from poet Jacqueline Allen Trimble, examines the many apocalypses that African Americans have weathered, advising that those who wish to avoid annihilation should ?live by rage and joy and turpentine.? Trimble reimagines the sonnet and the parable, producing poems of ironic indictment and joyous celebration. The book explores aspects of the Black experience in America, from Black woman pride, Nat Turner, kneeling, and the burning down of fast-food restaurants.
