Sep 15, 2017, 12:00 pm
Poet playwright, and labor activist Rodrigo Toscano visits the Finch Lane Gallery for a discussion of his wok, literary and otherwise, on September 15th at noon. Bring your own lunch and lots of questions.
Toscano is the author of several collections of poetry, including Partisans (1999), The Disparities (2002), Collapsible Poetics Theater (2008), which was chosen for the National Poetry Series, and Deck of Deeds (2012). Collapsible Poetics Theater is also a traveling “test of poetry” for which Toscano serves as artistic director and writer for volunteer performances engaging the intersection of poetry and theater. His work has been translated into several languages, and his radio pieces have aired on stations across the country. Toscano is also the recipient of a New York State Fellowship in Poetry.
Toscano works for the Labor Institute in conjunction the United Steelworkers and the National Institute for Environmental Health Science. He lives in the Greenpoint Township of Brooklyn.
