Book Release Party for Regie Cabico and Drew Pisarra

05/31/2024 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

The Bureau of General Services – Queer Division will host a joint book release party for poets of two new exciting poetry collections: Regie Cabico (A Rabbit in Search of a Rolex), and Drew Pisarra (Fassbinder: His Movies, My Poems). Already, Cabico's debut collection has been hailed as "A must read for anyone seeking to experience poetry that pushes the literary boundaries of our creative imaginations” by Dr. Karen Jaime (The Queer Nuyorican) while Pisarra's poetic tribute to the late queer German filmmaker has been called "a party in poetry, a wry, sly burst of beauty, attitude, and art" by novelist Monica Drake (The Folly of Loving Life). 

About the Authors: Regie Cabico is the first openly queer and Asian American poet to win the Nuyorican Poets Cafe Grand Slam. He's appeared on HBO, NPR, and TEDx Talk. He is the executive director for A Gathering of the Tribes. Drew Pisarra is the author of two sonnet collections (Periodic Boyfriends and Infinity Standing Up), two short story collections (You're Pretty Gay and Publick Spanking), and two radio plays (The Strange Case of Nick M., and Price in Purgatory).
