Postponed – Steve Bellin-Oka
March 24, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Our book launch event with Steve Bellin-Oka has been postponed and will be rescheduled for later this spring or summer. Copies of Instructions for Seeing A Ghost remain available at Magic City Books. Stay tuned for a new date.
Magic City Books and Tulsa Artist Fellowship are proud to host the Tulsa book launch event for Steve Bellin-Oka’s new poetry collection: INSTRUCTIONS FOR SEEING A GHOST, winner of the 2019 Vassar Miller Prize in Poetry.
This collection is the record of an American’s return home after a decade abroad, an exile imposed solely because he loved another man. In a virtuoso display of lyric and formal inventiveness, Bellin-Oka’s poems meditate on the myriad losses engendered by diaspora: of home, family and sexual identity, and spiritual certainty.
Steve Bellin-Oka is the author of a chapbook, Dead Letter Office at North Atlantic Station and is the recipient of a Tulsa Artist Fellowship in poetry. He has taught at the University of Mississippi and Eastern New Mexico University. He lives in Tulsa with his husband.
This event is free and open to the public. Copies of INSTRUCTIONS FOR SEEING A GHOST are available now at Magic City Books
