Sadie Dupuis reading - Mouthguard
Join us for an evening with Philadelphia poet Sadie Dupuis. Local poets Trixie Linoleum, Bubble Duchess and Luz Altair will read as well.
The poems in Sadie Dupuis' Mouthguard are a means of developing a deep personal mythology; to read them is to feel what self-discovery is, and then recognize it in the rearview mirror, disappearing over the broken American horizon. They emerge from the place where known experience and the unknown collide; a borderline we all cross on the way to becoming ourselves.
This is a book that hits you in your heart and third eye at the same time, thank god. Sadie is beyond talented.

This is a book where magical poems drive us with a holy momentum towards a lonely road where on the side of it we can find a party of accidents that we are all invited to.
