    Steamboat Mountain Reading Series is excited to host a poetry reading and Q&A with Paula Jane Mendoza and Matty Layne Glasgow.Join us via Zoom:"In these strange and unsettling poems, Mendoza catalogues how bodies become objects of consumption, voyeurism, and desire, and uses the imagery and politics of climate change to describe the immigrant and female body. This body, threatened with radical alteration and even collapse, reimagines itself through Mendoza's highly inventive language, and turns itself strange, mythic, and new. Mendoza's mordant, playful poems upend the 'conventional' narrative of racial and gender identity and radically rewrite our ideas of syntax to reframe the reader's gaze." --Paisley Rekdal, Utah poet laureate and author of NightingaleMatty Layne Glasgow is the author of deciduous qween (Red Hen Press, 2019), selected by Richard Blanco for the 2017 Benjamin Saltman Award.
