Live From Prairie Lights: Anaïs Duplan

Current Writers’ Workshop student Anaïs Duplan will read from her new book of poetry, Take This Stallion, published by Brooklyn Arts Press. "I have never before read a book like Anaïs Duplan's Take This Stallion. Her major talent is recognizing the self in the other, making for poems that flow forward in a tone of oneness—is oneness a tone?—poems that make evident an ever-expanding world by opening themselves up into that world." —Jericho Brown Anaïs Duplan was born in Jacmel, Haiti. She is the director of a performance collective called The Spacesuits and of the Center for Afrofuturist Studies, an artist residency program in Iowa City. Her poems and essays have appeared in Birdfeast, Hyperallergic, The Journal, [PANK], and other publications.
