Hafizah Augustus Geter: The Black Period


“I try my hand at remembering. An origin story is what you make of it. It can be a culture, a treasured heirloom, or a history, reduced.” In this Center for Fiction event, Hafizah Augustus Geter reads from her book The Black Period: On Personhood, Race, and Origin (Random House, 2022) and speaks with New York Times Magazine staff writer and author J Wortham. For more from Geter, read “Twelve Ways to Create Space to Write No Matter Where You Are” in the January/February issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.

Writing and Resistance


"In the spleen, an oasis / an oasis as mirage / all my people burned / on either side of me." Listen to poet Charif Shanahan, along with Matt Petronzio, Hafizah Geter, Rachel Eliza Griffiths, and Danniel Schoonebeek read for a National Poetry Month event called Writing and Resistance, presented by MashReads and the Strand Book Store.
